leaders

Here comes the sun: Ocilla-based Irwin
EMC officially began producing power
at its cooperative solar field in Ben Hill
County in May. The solar field will produce
about 2.3 million kilowatt-hours of solar
energy per year-enough to power
190 houses. Irwin EMC members may
purchase blocks of energy produced by
the solar array; each block is equivalent to
the energy provided by about five solar
panels.
Aquatic education: Coweta-Fayette EMC
in Palmetto donated Operation Round
Up funds to Chattahoochee Riverkeeper's
West Point Lake Floating Classroom
program in LaGrange. Students aboard
the 42-foot "Miss Sally" experience onthe-water environmental STEM (science,
technology, engineering and mathematics) education. In Operation Round Up,
members opt to round their monthly bills
to the nearest dollar, and the difference
goes into a fund that is used for charitable
causes in the community.
