Nestled in the Okefenoke Wildlife Refuge Johnny Appleseed Organic is developing a farm and residential teaching village pioneering Climate Farming. Climate farming promotes and supports the environment, clean eating and using the land and resources in the best way possible to promote the health of the plant and ourselves. And as a subscriber to OREMC’s Cooperative Solar program, they are powering their operation with renewable energy and staying true to their mission of living holistically and in harmony with nature.
OREMC consumer-members Charles and Wynell Lewis of Hortense, Georgia, had always “decked the halls” of their home with Christmas decorations and outdoor lights. But after their son, Chad, passed away on December 21, 2000, Christmas lights took on a whole new meaning. Now they share their lights of love and make spirits brighter at Christmas each year.
OREMC maintains a list of agencies that offer OREMC members experiencing a financial hardship assistance with their electric bills.
So, you are considering solar power options. First, you’ll need to choose whether you want to subscribe to OREMC’s Cooperative Solar program or invest in your own rooftop or ground mounted solar array. OREMC recently updated its policies related to both programs. These changes went into effect on November 1, 2020.
