Since 1937, Satilla Rural Electric Membership Corporation (REMC) has been dedicated to improving the quality of life in South Georgia. Satilla provides affordable electric service to its Members and actively supports the educational institutions in the communities it serves. This was recently demonstrated once again when the Satilla Rural Electric Membership Corporation Foundation made a $5,000 donation to Wiregrass Technical College. This gift is intended to benefit the students, residents, and communities of Southeast Georgia.
The funds will be used to support student and program success at Wiregrass Technical through scholarships, program equipment, capital projects and other worthy investments that promote a highly skilled workforce. Since it was established in 1999, the Satilla REMC Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships and grants intended to enhance the educational opportunities in our service area. Funding for these awards is made possible through voluntary contributions of Satilla REMC Members, who round up their monthly electric bills to the next dollar in a program called Smart Change. Members who are not participating but would like to start may call 1 (888) 738-6926 to sign up.
