Renewable Energy

Cooperative members across North Carolina are increasingly interested in harnessing the power of the sun to power their homes. Edgecombe-Martin County EMC is responding to the changing needs of our members, and we are working to incorporate renewable energy sources to our energy mix while also keeping costs as low as possible.

Edgecombe-Martin County EMC is always working to meet our members’ needs, and that goes for members that are also interested in renewable energy projects.

Our Renewable Energy Center

Solar generation is available only when the sun is shining, but it’s our job to make sure you have reliable, dependable power 24 hours a day, seven days a week, rain or shine, day and night. That’s why we must maintain an infrastructure (the “grid”) to meet energy needs and ensure an uninterrupted flow of energy, regardless of the weather.


It’s important that you work with Edgecombe-Martin County EMC before purchasing equipment or signing a contract with a solar vendor to determine what type of system works best for you, your lifestyle, and your utility provider. Interconnecting a solar array with Edgecombe-Martin County EMC’s distribution system requires an application, as well as contractual agreements.
