As residents across the state welcome the first official week of summer, Georgia Power encourages customers to take action to minimize the impact of higher temperatures and increased energy use on electric bills. The company provides information and energy efficiency programs that help give customers the options they need to reduce energy use and save money every day.
Georgia Power crews are responding to scattered outages this morning as a result of heavy rain and gusty winds overnight associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Claudette. Approximately 5,000 customers are currently without power as the weather system continues to move east across central and north Georgia.
With the potential for severe weather and heavy rain expected over the weekend, Georgia Power encourages customers to monitor local weather conditions and keep safety first as inclement weather moves across the state. The company is ready to respond to any service interruptions as quickly and safely as possible.
