Welcome to Haywood EMC!
Haywood EMC is prepared to meet the power needs of members during the solar eclipse on August 21.
During the eclipse, the moon will temporarily obscure the sun, reducing the amount of sunlight available to fuel solar panels in North Carolina and other areas near the eclipse path. However, Haywood EMC’s power supplier has planned for this event and has sufficient resources in place to provide reliable, continuous electricity regardless of the reduction in solar generation.
Solar energy is a growing part of Haywood EMC’s power portfolio. By relying on a diverse mix of generation resources, Haywood EMC is able to balance electricity supply with demand, and provide more reliable electric service.
