Navigating our new payment systems 

We thank you for your patience as we continue to upgrade many of our systems to better serve you. We ask that you continue to bear with us through this transition.

If you have NOT logged in to the member portal since May 1, you will need to set up new online access. Click here or visit our home page to register. 


Special tips to help your payment process:

  1. Web portal (greystonepower.com) - All payments may be made this way; however, this is the best way to make a payment if you have multiple accounts (residence, outdoor light, EMC Security, SurgeMaster, barn, etc.). All accounts can be paid at one time by clicking on the INVOICE tab. 
  2. Automated phone system - This is a good method when paying for a single account. If you have multiple accounts (which includes EMC Security, outdoor light, SurgeMaster, barn, etc.), you will need to enter each individual account number and pay for each individually. 
  3. Electronic funds transfer - Payments made through your bank or credit union will need to be set up to submit separate payments for each individual account number. 
  4. Kiosk - No lines, and convenient locations. Scan the bar code on the bill stub (bottom right) to easily access your account. If you do not have your stub, you will need to know each individual account number (if you have multiple), phone number and the last four digits of your social security number. Accounts will need to be paid separately. 

Please note: Cash, check, credit and debit cards are accepted. Kiosks will not make change with cash payments. If you are mailing your payment via a personal check, please make sure your account(s) is noted in the memo. 

Ready. Set. Vote.

As election time is fast approaching, we would like to introduce you to the three nominees currently running for the three board seats up for election. On May 6, members of the Nominating Committee selected Genevieve Cole, District 1, Paulding, Bartow Counties; Neal Dettmering, District 4, Carroll, Douglas Counties; and Jim Johns, District 8, Douglas County. This year's meeting will take place on Oct. 10.

Eligible GreyStone members may still be nominated by submitting a petition signed by 50 or more GreyStone members of record (the name must appear on the electric bill). To request a petition, you may call 770-370-2066 or visit greystonepower.com to print the online petition. The deadline to submit the completed petition and required candidate affidavit, also available online, is Thursday, July 2.

To become a candidate for election as a director of GreyStone, you must be a member in good standing, live within District 1, 4 or 8, and meet all other qualifications set forth in Section 4.02 of the Bylaws. A more precise description of the districts may be found in Section 4.04 of the Bylaws. The Bylaws may be found at greystonepower.com or may be obtained from any GreyStone office. 

Summer fun
Relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family is a highlight of summer. As parents, there are many things we can do to make sure our kids are safe this summer. 

Though the list could be quite extensive, we have narrowed it down to just a few safety tips to help you think through your summer plan. If you would like to learn more, click here.

  • Leaves of three, let them be! You never know where you will find the poison plants (poison ivy, oak and sumac), so make sure your family knows what it looks like. The last thing you want is to see your children run in from playing hide and seek in the yard with itchy welps all over them! 
  • Check for ticks - After a day of fun in the yard playing or doing yard work, be sure to check for the unwanted critters. While most bites are harmless, some may require medical attention.
  • Practice sun smarts - Teaching your children sun safety at an early age can reduce your child's chance of developing health problems later in life. Know what kind of sunscreen you are putting on and how well it protects. Look for the SPF (sun protection factor) numbers on the label and select an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply and reapply as needed.
  • Be water wise - Teach your children proper pool behavior, whether in or outside of the water. Young children need constant supervision around water. Make sure they know how to float correctly should they fall into the water and/or contact a lifeguard or an adult if there's an emergency.
  • Learn CPR - When performed correctly, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can save a life by restoring breathing and blood flow to the heart, brain and other organs until health care workers arrive (if needed).
