Power & Light Tariffs
The Power & Light tariffs (PL - Small, PL - Medium and PL - Large) are used by most commercial and industrial customers, as well as by some larger residential customers. The Power & Light tariffs have an hours use demand (HUD) structure, meaning not only energy consumption is used for billing, but also the rate at which the energy is used (demand).
Customers can get lower-cost energy by operating longer hours without increasing their rate of energy demand. One example of how to accomplish this is by going from a one-shift to a two or three-shift operation. Also, customers who have year-round consumption will generally enjoy a lower unit cost than a customer with seasonal or sporadic usage.
Customers who operate during times when the demand on Georgia Power's generating system is highest will pay a premium for that usage. Because large volume and constant users help Georgia Power operate its generating facilities more efficiently, they pay a lower unit cost for their electricity purchases.
