Being a good steward of the environment on our lakes is important to us. Whether it’s protecting our fish and wildlife to managing aquatic vegitation, we are committed to being a good partner in conservation.
Georgia Power owns approximately 90,000 acres of land reserved for future utility uses and power generation plant sites. We manage the land for watershed protection, wildlife habitat and sustainable forests. Additionally, we manage approximately 60,000 surface acres of water making up 17 lakes across the state associated with hydroelectric projects.
Georgia Power manages these resources under three basic principles:
Georgia Power employs professionals with expertise in parks and recreation, shoreline/property management, forestry, and archeology to manage our program and to ensure compliance with the FERC licenses and other federal, state and local regulations.
Our mission is to preserve the scenic, environmental, cultural and recreational value of our lands and lakes.
