Types of Construction Equipment

Easements

Work will occur primarily in the road right-of-way, where the existing power lines, streets, sidewalks, and portions of lawn or vegetation are located. In certain areas, we may need to acquire easements from landowners to provide enough space to construct, install, and maintain new equipment. An easement will allow Georgia Power to place equipment on the landowner’s property. Georgia Power has authorized contract land agents to work with landowners to acquire easements where needed to support planned equipment. This is a voluntary process and landowners are not required to grant easements. If you are contacted by a land agent, they will  be able to explain the easement process. For further information, you may also contact us at 888-404-1056 or the Contact Us page.
