In most states, large commercial and industrial customers don't have a choice when it comes to their electric supplier. But that's not the case in Georgia.
Our unique customer choice arrangement gives many new large commercial and industrial customers the opportunity to choose their power supplier.
How is this possible?
To prevent costly duplication of services, Georgia's legislature defined the electric utilities' territories with the 1973 Territorial Electric Service Act. A special provision of the act allows new customers with a connected load of 900 kilowatts or greater at full initial operation a one-time choice of power supplier.
How does this work?
Because Georgia's major power suppliers jointly own the state's transmission system, the competition is made cost effective. The Integrated Transmission System (ITS) guarantees each power supplier the ability to serve a customer choice facility.
Why does this matter to you?
Choosing your power supplier is an important decision. The quality of service and rates can differ greatly between suppliers. Since your decision is permanent, it makes sense to carefully weigh all the options.
