About the Energy Industry
The key to meeting our growing energy demands is diversifying our portfolio of energy resources. This allows us to innovate in research and development and achieve our mission of delivering reliable, affordable electricity to our customers. To support our mission, we maintain a 20-year energy resource plan, which is updated and approved by the Georgia Public Service Commission. The diversity of fuels that we offer allows a reliable power supply for our 2.6 million Georgia Power customers. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and have invested more than $4 billion in transmission and distribution (power lines) and $7 billion in environmental control technologies.
