Electric Vehicles

Georgia Power is excited about what the growing electric vehicle (EV) market offers our consumers. Electric transportation can help customers save money on fuel and maintenance costs, and reduce their environmental impact. As a domestic source of energy, electric transportation can contribute to our nation's energy independence.

Georgia Power has launched its Electric Transportation Pilot Program to promote the use of electric vehicles (EVs) throughout our state.

The program offers rebates, education and services – including special rates and charging options – to help our residential and business customers save money, save energy and reduce their environmental impact through clean transportation.

Georgia Power's Electric Transportation Pilot Program has five areas of focus:

  • Education & Awareness Campaign (Underway)
  • Workplace Charging Incentives (Mid November)
  • Residential Charging Incentives (January 2015)
  • Community Charging at GPC Facilities (December 2014)
  • Community Charging Infrastructure (Spring 2015)

Visit our website for frequent updates, including information on rebates for the installation of qualifying charging stations, charging locations in your area. You can also email us for more information.

Three Types of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles all have batteries and need to be plugged in to charge. There are three different types of electric vehicles: the battery electric vehicle (BEV), the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), and the extended-range electric vehicle (EREV). However, all electric vehicles need to be plugged in to recharge.

Charging My EV

There are two, convenient ways to charge your electric. EV owners can charge at home with the installation of Level 1 or Level 2 chargers, or around town at various workplace, retail and public charging locations.
