June: Business of the Month: Hart EMC

The Hart County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Hart EMC has been named the Chamber Business of the Month.. They were chosen because of they are a good business partner in our community, a good neighbor and supporter to Chamber efforts, and because they show a great sense of community involvement in Hartwell. 

Hart EMC is an Electric Membership Cooperative, meaning the people who receive power from them are the owners of their company.  Hart EMC was formed in the 1930s. Today they continue to serve members in 6 counties, with over 35,000 meters. While keeping their members’ needs at the forefront of our mission, they strive daily to provide the most reliable, affordable power available.   They also initiated a program called “Operation Roundup” where customers have the option of rounding up their bills to the nearest dollar and the accrued funds are then allocated to charitable donations in the counties they serve.

Their continued commitment and professional attitude shows the care they have for Hart County’s citizens.  We are pleased to highlight their efforts and thank them for being such a good business partner.
