Our Community Charging Program expands the growth of electric vehicle fast charging locations by partnering with businesses to host a site. We cover all installation, maintenance and electricity costs and you reap the benefits of attracting electric vehicle drivers and help grow electric vehicle infrastructure across Georgia.
As the number of electric vehicles on teh road increases, Georgia Power is also committed to increasing the availability of electric vehicle charging stations.
When undertaking a longer journey with your electric car, or if you do not hae access to home charging, then charging on the public network will be essential.

Electric vehicles and equipment are quiet, clean and efficient and offer users the opportunity to save money on fuel and maintenance costs, reduce their environmental impact and contribute to the energy independence of the U.S. by using a domestically produced source of energy.
Georgia Power is working with major vehicle manufacturers and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to bring economically and technologically viable on-road electric transportation technologies to the marketplace. We are working to enhance the speed of adoption, and understand the impact of vehicle charging on our nation's electricity grid. We’re also helping to develop industry standards for multiple levels of charging and studying the impact of electric transportation on grid reliability, including vehicle-to-home (V2H) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies.
We are actively evaluating plug-in electric vehicles — both hybrid and total electric — and charging technologies for use in our company operations.
The increase varies depending on the type of electric vehicle, as well as the amount the vehicle is driven. In addition, electricity usage and the time of day you charge your vehicle will also affect the price. However, compared with gasoline, you will see savings of greater than 70% on fuel costs.
Today's consumers are looking for vehicles that are more efficient and cost-effective to drive; plus, state and federal incentives make purchasing an electric vehicle attractive to consumers.
With all the different makes and models of electric and hybrid vehicles on the market — ranging in size, price and options — the electric vehicle-buying experience is expected to be similar to the traditional car-buying experience. Today’s EV also offers the ability to charge on a standard 120-volt outlet, which every home has. Consumers will have the option of purchasing higher-powered chargers for quicker charges. There will also be chargers available at some commercial locations for 10- to 20-minute charges.
Many heavily populated areas, including Atlanta and Birmingham, are considered non-attainment zones by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Moving from traditional fuels to electricity would help these areas meet air quality standards. Clean Cities Atlanta received a DOE PEV-readiness grant to address the issues surrounding the deployment of electric vehicles in Atlanta. Partnering with Georgia Power, Plug-in Georgia, the city of Atlanta, the state of Georgia and a coalition of stakeholders, the task force is working on infrastructure planning and education. We are encouraged that there are many more interest groups supporting electric vehicle technology today. We also believe the technology has caught up with consumer expectations and that many consumers will now be able to purchase a product that meets and exceeds their expectations.
Electric vehicles come in many forms, but all have batteries and need to be plugged in to recharge. The typical types that consumers will have to consider are the battery electric vehicle, or BEV, which is a total-electric vehicle; the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or PHEV; and the extended-range electric vehicle, or EREV. The PHEV and the EREV use a combination of battery (for all-electric range) and internal combustion engine (for extended range).
There's also the LSV, low-speed vehicle, and the NEV, neighborhood electric vehicle. These total-electric vehicles are street legal in 35 mph speed zones.
Georgia Power offers a time-of-use plug-in electric vehicle rate to help PEV owners save money. The federal government offers income tax credits of $7,500 for a battery electric vehicle and for a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. An income tax credit is also available to any eligible business for the purchase or lease of an electric vehicle charger located in the state. The amount of the credit is 10% of the cost of the charger or $2,500, whichever is less. Drivers of electric vehicles are also permitted to use interstate HOV lanes and HOT lanes with single occupancy.
Batteries used in electric vehicles are recyclable and will have many useful lives. There are a number of industries looking into second-life businesses for them.
Most electric vehicle owners will never replace the battery. Auto manufacturers are offering warranties of up to 100,000 miles, which is a sign of their confidence in the battery reliability. And with increased demand, the price of these batteries continues to decline.
Georgia Power is in the process of evaluating various types of electric vehicles and charging technologies for use in its own operations. The benefits of plug-in electric bucket trucks and light-duty pickup trucks include reduced emissions and noise, and cost savings. There are also a lot of non-road applications we feel will be beneficial to our operations. We continue to gather data and identify areas of our company that would benefit from the use of plug-in electric vehicles.
Electric vehicle owners can expect to see an increase in their electricity use. However, because gasoline and diesel prices outweigh that of electricity, they will still save money using electricity to power their vehicles. It's estimated that electric vehicle owners who charge their vehicles during Georgia Power's super-off-peak period will see the cost equivalent of paying approximately $0.50/gallon for gasoline, compared with more than $3.50/gallon for a gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicle.
Georgia Power has also helped many of its commercial and industrial customers save thousands of dollars annually on fuel costs by using electric vehicles and equipment to move materials. With today's fast charging systems, the availability and productivity of electric materials-handling vehicles and equipment have increased, also contributing to cost savings and operational efficiencies.
Yes, Georgia Power offers a time-of-use rate for residential customers who own plug-in vehicles. Customers who sign up for this rate for 12 months and charge their vehicles during super-off-peak hours between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. will receive the lowest-cost option for charging their vehicle. In addition, Georgia Power offers a (three-part) time-of-use fuel rate that can enhance savings.
You will need to call Georgia Power and request to be placed on another rate.
Georgia Power has ample generation capacity and believes electric vehicles will not impact electricity reliability. Unlike many other large electrical appliances that need to operate continuously, electric vehicles can be charged during nighttime hours, when demand is low and Georgia Power has excess capacity.
It can cost as little as $0. Today's electric vehicles are capable of being charged from a standard 120-volt circuit, which every home has, so a buyer can purchase a car, drive it home and charge it in a typical home outlet. However, Georgia Power recommends using a dedicated 120-volt outlet to avoid overloading the circuit. For those who would like to charge their cars faster, there are higher-powered chargers available. However, because of the higher voltage, a permit may be required for the home installation of some of the faster chargers.
Georgia Power continues to work with all the major auto manufacturers to understand the use of electricity as a transportation fuel and its impact on the grid. Our responsibility is to our customers and making sure that we are prepared to meet their energy needs.
Georgia Power and the EV Project are working with multiple vendors to help establish a charging network within the metro Atlanta area. Georgia Power is working with downtown employers to educate them about EV-charging infrastructure and to develop charging best practices.
This issue is being addressed by legislators and automakers.
Infrastructure is already beginning to appear in Georgia. However, extensive infrastructure to support the vehicles may be deployed at the pace of vehicle sales. The industry believes the majority of vehicle charging will take place overnight at vehicle owner's homes. Overnight charging will be less costly and more efficient for everyone.
