Make Ready Electric Transportation Program

This program allows customers to apply for funding to assist in the installation of the infrastructure required to support electric transportation charging systems at your facilities. By investing in this infrastructure, your business can begin supporting electric transportation initiatives meeting your customers' and employees' needs in addition to sustainability initiatives. This program is also designed to meet the needs of fleets. Let our experts help you get started today.

 

Georgia Power Make Ready Program Infrastructure

Georgia Power will install, own and operate all of the charging infrastructure behind the customer meter all the way up to the charger. This includes the panel, switchgear, wiring, conduits and disconnects. Georgia Power does not purchase the charger nor install the charger — of course we can help you with this as part of our service so you get a turnkey solution.

After you submit an application for funding assistance through the Make Ready Program to get your charger installed, one of our experts will work with you to verify the application and your needs.
