Make Ready Program

Driving Business Forward

Our Make Ready Program removes the biggest financial hurdle of installing electric chargers at your location by installing, owning and maintaining the electrical infrastructure behind your meter up to the charger. We help you make installing electric charging infrastructure affordable so your business can be prepared for the growing electric vehicle market and support sustainability efforts.

*Program conditions and restrictions apply. The Georgia Power Make Ready program has limited funds available and has currently met its funding threshold. All new applications will be placed on a waiting list pending the approval of additional funds, if and when such funds are made available. During this time, our Electric Transportation experts can still help you develop and execute a strategic Electric Transportation plan for your business while the potential for additional funding is being determined.

To ensure you have what you need, please review our checklist before you start your application process.
