More about your cooperative...

The UPPER CUMBERLAND ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION (often shortened to UCEMC) is an electric power distribution cooperative. UCEMC is owned and operated by its members and distributes electric power through more than 4,500 miles of lines to more than 47,000 members located primarily in Jackson, Overton, Putnam and Smith Counties and northern DeKalb County. However, several members are served in the fringe counties of Clay, Fentress, Macon, Pickett, White and Wilson.

A board of nine directors elected by members from the membership directs UCEMC. A general manager, employed and directed by the board, manages operations of the cooperative with a staff of 133 employees.

UCEMC had assets of $180.8 million at the end of FY 2014. Operating revenue from the sale of 1,042,081,262 kilowatt hours and other revenue totaled $112 million from which it paid TVA $83 million for the power sold and $25.4 million for operating expenses and debt expense. The remaining margin of $4.2 million is being used to help finance new construction.

Bustling residential, commercial and industrial communities flourish in the Upper Cumberland Region of Tennessee due in large part to abundant and economical electric power distributed by the UPPER CUMBERLAND ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION.


UCEMC’s New Logo Reflects Progressive Utility

Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (UCEMC) recently rebranded itself to better reflect who they are today. UCEMC maintains its commitment to serve its neighbors with safe, reliable electric service. The new logo is a reflection of who UCEMC is today and their focus on the future of economic development in the region, by delivering a modern, efficient power distribution system.


UCEMC is forward-thinking, always putting members’ needs first. That’s why they embarked on an impressive undertaking to invest in plant infrastructure improvements.  This investment allows UCEMC to stay ahead of the power technology curve by becoming more efficient with less resources. For members, it means that UCEMC will provide a higher degree of reliability and allow UCEMC to keep rates affordable.


“We place great value in the rich history we’ve built and where we need to focus for the future. We wanted this logo to reflect who UCEMC is today,” said General Manager Jimmy Gregory. “We are focused on providing local, reliable, safe and affordable power to local people, our friends and neighbors.”


UCEMC is a cooperative owned by its members. It distributes electric power through more than 4,500 miles of lines to more than 47,000 meters located primarily in Jackson, Overton, Putnam, Smith Counties and northern DeKalb County, with additional members served in the fringe areas of Clay, Fentress, Macon, Pickett, White and Wilson.
