Okefenokee Rural Electric Membership Corp
- Electric Companies
Okefenoke REMC serves nearly 34,000 commercial, industrial and residential customers in southeast Georgia and northeast Florida. Our goal is to provide our members with power that is both highly reliable and cost-effective as well as improve the quality of life for our members and our employees. We will promote our resources in the communities we serve through our involvement with area leaders and educators. No one knows what is best for a community more that the men and women who live and work there. And since OREMC is a local company, staffed by local people, we are in a good position to be able to listen and respond to the needs of our communities. We have a history of working as partners in bringing jobs together in a unified effort to improve the quality of life in our communities. In addition to providing services for members, OREMC employees are involved in a wide variety of activities that include coaching Little League, volunteering in local schools, and working to attract new business and jobs to the community. Our employees participate in activities such as Reading Programs and Science Fairs at our local schools. Each year we sponsor the Washington Youth Tour by sending four high-school students from our service area to our nation's capital for leadership training. We award scholarships to ten deserving students in our service area to assist with their educational expenses. All of these young people represent our future, and we expect to see dividends from our efforts as previous winners assume leadership roles in our communities.
