Founded in 1936, Carroll EMC came into existence to bring electricity to farmers and homeowners in rural, Western Georgia. The cooperative reincorporated its agricultural heritage in its business model with the biannual Agribusiness Seminar and student FFA Day and through its involvement in and support of agricultural organizations across the state.
