Smart Usage

Rate Overview

Want more control over your monthly power bills? Our Smart Usage rate was designed to do just that. By making small changes to how and when you use energy, you could save on your annual energy bill. Your electric appliances, like clothes dryers, ovens, and dish washers, are some of the biggest energy users in your home. By using these appliances at different times of the day, you could reduce your monthly energy bill. 

Smart Usage Concept

How the rate works:

There are two ways to manage your bill on the Smart Usage rate:

  1. Avoid simultaneous use of major appliances. If you can avoid running appliances at the same time, then you could reduce your maximum usage of power in a 60-minute period. This translates to less demand on Georgia Power, and savings for you.
  2. Shift some of your summer energy usage away from the on-peak time periods (2-7 p.m., Monday–Friday, June–September, excluding holidays).
