Delivering the Power
Gibson Electric Membership Corporation is a distributor of electricity or power. We purchase the electricity we provide to members’ homes and businesses from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). TVA delivers the electricity through its generation and transmission system to Gibson EMC’s 20 substations. The voltage is lowered at our substations and delivered to members through Gibson EMC’s nearly 3,600-mile distribution system. Seventy-seven cents of every dollar Gibson EMC collects goes to pay TVA for the cost of electricity. Click here for an illustration.
