Electric co-ops, like Jones-Onslow EMC, are a catalyst for good in our communities. Co-ops engage their members to do and enjoy things that might otherwise be impossible or difficult. Just like when JOEMC was established over 75 years ago (to bring electricity to the areas other utilities did not want to serve), today, it means providing the best customer service possible, being easy to do business with by providing multiple ways to pay your bill, communicating effectively with members to keep them informed and supporting our communities in whatever way we can.

Cooperatives exist to meet a need that was previously unmet in the community and they are ever striving to anticipate and plan for the future needs of their members. The business model is unique. It is practical, mission-oriented and puts people first. Co-ops strive to be a trusted voice in their communities and they have earned that trust because, while not perfect, they always have their members’ best interest at heart and are determined to enrich the lives of those living and working in the communities they serve.
