2017 Citizenship Report
Message from Paul Bowers
Chairman, President and CEO of Georgia Power
Across Georgia, our employees work tirelessly to provide safe, clean, reliable and affordable energy to 2.5 million customers, but we know our role encompasses more than just keeping the lights on.
Last year, many of our 7,500 employees put service before self, dedicating thousands of personal volunteer hours to charitable giving and education initiatives in their communities. Our company, through the Georgia Power Foundation, partnered with more than 1,300 service organizations on initiatives designed to improve the lives of Georgians every day.
We believe that it is our responsibility to build a better tomorrow for our families, friends and neighbors. For us, this starts by investing in the next generation of students. We recognize the impact that instilling strong Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and literacy skills can have on their future, and the future of our state.
For more than 130 years, Georgia Power has grown to be one of the most respected companies in the state – in no small part because of our steadfast commitment to the communities we serve.
As you review our Citizenship Report, we hope that you will be inspired to invest in the next generation of Georgians, too.
