Economic Development

BRMEMC works closely with county and city governments, as well as local chambers of commerce and state agencies, to promote economic development throughout our service area.

Blue Ridge Mountain EMC was initially created in 1937 to provide dependable electric service at a reasonable price within the five counties of its Western North Carolina and North Georgia service area. While not always easy to do so, Blue Ridge Mountain EMC has maintained some of the lowest utility rates in the Southeast while upholding some of the highest quality standards for an electric utility.

One of the many services that we provide is economic development assistance to businesses and industries through responsible development of our existing industries, recruitment of new industries, and in working with the various agency partners at the local level within our service area. We do this because Blue Ridge Mountain EMC is interested in the creation of jobs and investment in the community. By making these efforts we will help our communities to grow and prosper and we will be instrumental both in maintaining and improving the quality of life for all of our member-customers.
