Calling All Rising High School Juniors And Seniors

At the close of the 2018-2019 school year, three rising high school juniors or seniors will be able to take part in some great adventures with fellow North Carolina students.

These students will join a contingent of students to travel to Washington, D.C. as part of the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. Each year, North Carolina students meet thousands of other students from electric cooperatives across the nation.

South River EMC, as one of 26 electric cooperatives across the state, offers this opportunity to area students to be part of this unforgettable experience.

Payments, Speed, Accuracy & Security-- Payment Change

If you pay your electric bill through the U.S. Mail,changes are coming.

Starting with the November electric bills,payments will be sent to a facility in Atlanta for processing. Converting to an off-site payment processing facility will ensure payments are processed quicker, increase accuracy and provide greater security of member information. For most people nothing will change. As long as you use the envelope provided with your bill, enclose the stub and a check you won’t even notice the change.

Payment System Maintenance--October 23 at 8 p.m.

ATTENTION: Our bill payment system will be unavailable from 8-9 p.m. tonight, October 23 for maintenance.

Many roads in the area are flooded and the rivers are expected to crest over the next two days resulting in nearly historic flooding.
