Snapping Shoals
Placeholder Image

Utility cooperatives were begun under the New deal, created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to ensure that rural communities such as ours could receive electricity.

In 1936, a group of local businessmen started Snapping Shoals Power and Light Co. Soon, 90 miles of lines were created, serving 270 customers.

Since then, Snapping Shoals has grown into a co-op that serves 95,000 customers and covers eight counties and parts of Atlanta.

Since its inception, and with the assistance of its customers, the co-op has supported many of our local nonprofits.

Members of Snapping Shoals EMC are active community volunteers.

We are grateful to have Snapping Shoals EMC in our community; it is a valuable resource.

Thank you, Snapping Shoals, for 75 years of service to our community.
