More about your cooperative...

The UPPER CUMBERLAND ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION (often shortened to UCEMC) is an electric power distribution cooperative. UCEMC is owned and operated by its members and distributes electric power through more than 4,600 miles of lines to more than 50,000 members located primarily in Jackson, Overton, Putnam and Smith Counties and northern DeKalb County. However, several members are served in the fringe counties of Clay, Fentress, Macon, Pickett, White and Wilson.

A board of nine directors elected by members from the membership directs UCEMC. A general manager, employed and directed by the board, manages operations of the cooperative with a staff of 132 employees.

UCEMC had assets of $186.9 million at the end of FY 2018. Operating revenue from the sale of 1,059,829,782 kilowatt hours and other revenue totaled $114 million from which it paid TVA $85 million for the power sold and $29 million for operating expenses and debt expense. The remaining margin of $230 thousand is being used to help finance new construction.

Bustling residential, commercial and industrial communities flourish in the Upper Cumberland Region of Tennessee due in large part to abundant and economical electric power distributed by the UPPER CUMBERLAND ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION.
