Tucker, Ga – Jack E. Waters of Midway, Ga. was elected recently as a member director of the board of Georgia Transmission Corporation (GTC). Waters also serves as vice president of the board of directors for Coastal Electric Cooperative as well as chairman of the cooperative’s audit committee.
In addition to his current roles on the GTC and Coastal Electric boards, Waters has served as a director for the Georgia Energy Cooperative board, representing Coastal Electric. He is a director for The Heritage Bank where he’s active on the credit management committee. At The Heritage Bank, he attained the position of senior vice president during his career there before retiring in 2006. Within the community, Waters is a member of the Hinesville Rotary Club, the Midway Museum, the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce and the LeConte-Woodmanston Foundation.
“Even in challenging economic times, Georgia is predicted to be among the fastest-growing states in the nation with per capita electricity use expanding even faster than the population,” said Waters. “The strong partnership between Georgia Transmission Corporation and Coastal Electric will help ensure reliable electric service for our members during this continued growth.”
GTC is a not-for-profit cooperative owned by 39 Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs) in Georgia, including Coastal Electric. Georgia Transmission delivers the high-capacity, long-haul power to EMCs that deliver electricity to members along electric distribution lines and systems. The corporation owns more than $1.6 billion in assets, including nearly 3,000 miles of transmission lines and more than 600 substations across the state.
