Energy Assistance

Georgia Power knows the importance of energy in our daily lives. That’s why we partner with community-based organizations, nonprofits, houses of worship, and government-funded programs and services to assist those in need. Use this page as a tool to locate financial assistance and other services.

Programs that Provide Financial Assistance

Project SHARE provides help to those who are truly in need. Last year, Project SHARE provided assistance to more than 50,000 Georgians, with Georgia Power and its customers contributing $2.3 million to the program.

If you would like to apply, contact your local chapter of The Salvation Army. They take calls for assistance from 9-10 a.m. local time on Wednesday mornings.

Contact Your Local Chapter
