Tucker, Georgia [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Georgia’s first renewable energy program, Green Power Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), welcomed another 83,000 customers via its newest members, Central Georgia EMC, Colquitt EMC and Middle Georgia EMC. Now Green Power EMC membership has 35 electric cooperatives in Georgia, and has generated more than 100 million kWh of electricity from landfill gas, low-impact hydro and small-scale solar projects since the program began in October 2003. Green Power EMC announced plans to purchase 20 megawatts of electric capacity from the first poultry litter-to-green energy operation in Georgia. Additionally, in 2005, Green Power EMC launched an evaluation of the feasibility of wind generation in Georgia. Wind data was gathered from a meteorological tower installed at the Rocky Mountain Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Plant owned by Oglethorpe Power Corp. and Georgia Power in Floyd County, Ga.
