At Georgia Power, we take pride in providing you with safe, reliable electricity as well as excellent customer service – and we’re constantly seeking innovative new ways to meet the needs of our valued customers.
Because of our commitment to providing the best possible energy experience for our customers, we offer an array of programs and incentives designed to make energy more affordable while also providing tips on ways to conserve and reduce energy use.
Our Home Energy Improvement Program (HEIP) encourages Georgia Power customers who own their homes to benefit from increased energy savings and rebates by making a few simple energy-efficient home improvements. Taking part in this program’s fast and easy three-step process and many of the recommended projects could potentially add value to your home.
This is the most important step. You’ll make an appointment with a participating program contractor who will complete an in-home energy assessment and review the recommended upgrades as well as the potential rebates with you.
If you qualify for the program, you’ll simply approve the energy-efficient upgrades and schedule to have the contractor complete the improvements.
Once the upgrades are complete, you’ll receive a follow-up in-home energy assessment to verify your improvements and finalize your rebate application. You’ll begin to see a reduction in your energy costs soon after due to the increased efficiency of your home!
