On Aug. 11, 1938, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt traveled to Barnesville, Georgia, to celebrate one of the remarkable achievements of the New Deal: the three-year-old Rural Electrification Administration (REA).
Effective June 2017, Tipmont’s service charge will increase from $29 per month to $32.50 per month for residential members. The rate adjustment pays for continued investment in the distribution system to maintain service reliability.
As a non-profit electric cooperative, Tipmont’s goal is to sell you the least amount of energy that you actually need. We don’t pocket more profit if we sell more energy. Our only profit is your satisfaction. With summer just around the corner, here are five tried and true ways to lower your energy usage during warm weather.

The majority of our outages most years stem from weather-related events. 2015 was, by all accounts, a very weather-neutral year in our service area.

We want to hear from every member!

An increasing amount of questions are being asked about Tipmont’s fiber implementation, so let me use this opportunity to describe the project and its many benefits.
