Frequently Asked Questions

Get all the details by reading common questions and answers.

Will I need to list everyone in my household to participate in this program?

Yes, anyone who resides in your household, regardless of age, should be listed in your application.

How long will the assessment take?

The virtual self-assessment form should take approximately one hour or less to complete. If a follow-up virtual chat needs to be set-up with a Georgia Power Energy Assessor, the length of that call may vary.

Energy Savings Tip #29

Use hot water for laundry sparingly.

Use hot water for laundry sparingly. Wash your clothes – a full load at a time – in warm or cold water and rinse in cold. Use hot water sparingly. And don’t use too much detergent. Oversudsing makes your machine work harder.
