Leasing Benefits

Leasing Benefits

Leasing provides the option of paying a monthly charge for the use of a lighting system instead of paying the full cost of the equipment and installation up front. When you lease lights from Georgia Power, you won't have to worry about your lights again. Our customer service representatives will answer your call for service 24/7, and your outdoor lights will be quickly repaired and maintained on an ongoing basis by our professional lighting service technicians.

    Enjoy the Benefits of Leasing:

  • No up-front costs
  • Fast, expert repair/replacement of inoperative lights
  • No repair hassles
  • Parts in stock for quick repair/replacement
