Linemen showered with appreciation

Don't be alarmed!

In order to improve our communications with you, we are reaching out to ask a few questions to find out how you feel about our communication methods and the type of information you are receiving, wish to receive, or would like to see less of. We simply want to know if we are communicating with you effectively and in the way YOU wish to receive it.

We are working in coordination with TSE Services to conduct the Residential Communications Survey, which will begin on or about May 11, and should conclude on or before May 28. Approximately 350 members will be randomly selected to participate in the telephone interview. The survey calls will be made primarily during weeknights from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and some Saturday evenings as deemed necessary. The length of the interview will be approximately 12 minutes, depending upon the survey conversation.

If you are unable to participate at the time of the initial call, you will have the opportunity to schedule an appointment to complete the interview at a more convenient time for your schedule. Your thoughts and opinions are extremely important to us. We hope that you will take a few minutes to give us the needed feedback to communicate with you the way that YOU want us to. 

Data Decisions Group, a large market research firm based in Chapel Hill, N.C., will conduct the actual phone interviews, which will originate from their call center. Calls originating from this center will have a “919” area code. Professional telephone interviewers will identify themselves as calling on behalf of GreyStone Power. This is legit. We have given them permission to ask questions on our behalf. These calls are safe to provide information to, though you NEVER want to provide your personal financial information to anyone that calls you.

We want to thank you in advance for taking the time to help us improve. You have a voice and we want to listen. This is a great opportunity to let us know how you feel about our various communication tools:
  • The GreyStone Report (stuffed with bill)
  • The GreyStone Connection (wraps the GEORGIA Magazine)
  • GEORGIA Magazine
  • Bill inserts (stuffed with bill)
  • eConnect (electronic newsletter sent via email)
  • GreyStone's web page (
  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, LinkedIn)
  • Annual Meeting (business meeting for members, held annually on the second Saturday in October)
  • Various signage (walk-in center and branch kiosk locations)

Got a bill problem?

Ever had a problem having your payment applied to your account? We have found that many members may experience a problem here and there, so we have investigated and found the top reasons why you might be having an issue and why your payment may not have posted.  
  • Postdated checks are submitted. We cannot hold checks.
  • Items are stapled or taped together. They cannot go through the machine this way and often cause problems.
  • Pay the exact amount to avoid problems.
  • The numeric and spelled out check amounts must agree. If we receive a check like this, we apply the payment based on the spelled out amount.
  • Often envelopes include bill stubs, but no payment. We can't process it if we didn't receive it.
  • We do not accept counter checks. Unfortunately, they will not scan.
  • When multiple accounts are being paid, but the check is for a generic amount, we cannot process the payment because we are unsure how you would like this applied to your accounts. 
To ensure the success of your payment, follow the tips above. Should you have additional problems, Member Services Representatives are just a phone call away. They are ready to help when you need them by calling 770-942-6576.
