How is Your Electric Dollar Used?

When you send your electric bill payment to Walton EMC, how is your money used?

It may surprise you to know that most of each dollar goes to pay for the actual electricity that comes to your home or business -- almost 80 cents.

What’s left over pays for material, equipment, labor, billing, interest and other business expenses. As a matter of fact, Walton EMC has one of the lowest overhead costs of any of the 900 electric cooperatives across the country!
