Your high power bills are too high!

Do you have $200 to give away?!

Georgia Power is a multi-billion dollar company and has seen consistent profits, but it is being greedy and asking for more. Georgia Power should not be raising bills when gas prices are soaring, food costs are at an all-time high and families are struggling to make ends meet.

Raising rates is unjustified

Raising rates is inequitable

Raising rates will hurt communities

Who is raising your bills and why

The Public Service Commission

This is not the first time your bills have been raised. No matter where you live, if you pay a power bill in Georgia, 
or know someone who is paying a power bill, THIS AFFECTS YOU! The Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) has full authority over Georgia Power and they can disapprove the rate increase. We elect the PSC and their job is to ensure we have safe, reliable and AFFORDABLE electricity from Georgia Power.

Your bills have been raised over and over again.

You don’t have to struggle alone with high power bills

STOP HIGH POWER BILLS

Georgia Power announced plans calling for a $200* increase per year for the average household. If approved, the first increase would go into effect in January 2023 and the monthly increase would be around $14, followed by additional increases in 2024 and 2025. Georgia Power is a multi-billion dollar company and has seen consistent profits, but it is being greedy and asking for more.

Georgia Power should not be raising bills when gas prices are soaring, food costs are at an all-time high and families are struggling to make ends meet.
