Standard Service Plan


Standard Service is Georgia Power's basic rate plan and is available to all residential customers. The plan has a monthly base charge and a rate that changes based on your monthly usage and the time of the year. This plan is ideal for customers who are comfortable with fluctuations in their monthly electric bill or are less likely to shift their electric usage for the months June through September to the evening and weekend time periods.
