When it comes to striving to keep migratory birds safe from electrical equipment including transmission lines and substations, Georgia Power has been actively involved in bird protection awareness and protection for many years. Our company proudly supports our own Avian Protection Plan (APP), which is an approach developed and endorsed as a long-term collaboration between utility members of the Edison Electric Institute and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This voluntary, proactive, utility-specific program is designed to protect and conserve migratory birds by reducing the risk that may occur as a result of avian interactions with utility facilities, particularly power lines.Back to Top ↑
