Georgia is one of the fastest-growing states in the nation. Rapid growth in population necessitates growth in infrastructure, including transmission and distribution lines for electricity. Georgia Power is required by law to serve all customers and must build and maintain the transmission and distribution equipment and lines needed to do that.
We're investing $3 billion in electrical system upgrades over the next few years. This means sometimes we'll have to expand or build power lines, substations and other facilities in heavily developed areas. Construction can disrupt the appearance of neighborhoods and access to businesses.
Expansion is more than just legal requirements and capital budgets. We understand that the work we propose and undertake may raise concerns for you. We pledge to engage you in the process, discuss your concerns and suggestions, and weigh them carefully when working out a solution.
Refer to this website for information pertaining to local projects. To join in the process of completing transmission improvements for Georgia, please let us know about your questions or concerns on local projects by contacting us.
With plans recently announced to add two nuclear operating units to Plant Vogtle, Georgia Power is working to upgrade the transmission line running from Thomson to Waynesboro.
Hairpin Line Rebuild
To continue providing safe and reliable electricity, Georgia Power is rebuilding the 8-mile long Jack McDonough-Peachtree Boulevard line that extends from Cobb County to Fulton County.
Curious to see how these projects may affect your community? You're not alone, and we want to make sure all of your questions get answered!
