One program. Two ways to save.
Whole House and Individual Improvements
Due to the declared COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia Power is suspending, until further notice, all customer programs that involve customer facing interaction, including the Whole House Improvements Approach for the Home Energy Improvement Program. We appreciate your interest in our program, but out of an abundance of caution for the safety, health, and wellbeing of our customers, employees and participating Program Contractors, we think it is necessary to temporarily pause this aspect of the program.
Low on time? No problem. Your participating Program Contractor will determine whether you’ll get more out of the Whole House Improvements approach or Individual Improvements approach and can make the upgrades for you.
If you’ve already submitted an application, you can check on its status here.
