Georgia Power adds new outage notification option

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Georgia Power has added a new outage notification option to it's online Outage and Storm Center at www.georgiapower.com/storm. The new service will enable customers to choose from multiple notification options including text message, phone calls and email in order to get outage alerts. Once an option is selected, customers automatically receive personalized updates should a power outage occur at their home or business due to severe weather, traffic accidents or other causes.

"We're continuously implementing new technologies to provide best-in-class service to our customers, including how we communicate with them during outages," said Leslie Sibert, vice president of distribution for Georgia Power. "The Outage Alert service is one example of how we're adding value for our customers by providing them with the information they need to make well-informed decisions during unexpected outages."

The new Outage Alert service provides users with:

− The ability to register up to five people per account – an important function for families and businesses.

− Detailed information, including the cause of the outage and an estimated time of restoration.

− Updates if the estimated time of restoration changes.

− A "Do Not Disturb" option to silence alerts overnight or at other preferred times.

Visitors to Georgia Power's online Outage & Storm Center can also report an outage and access the company's recently introduced interactive Outage Map, which allows them to view detailed information on known outages across the state and track crews as they work to restore power. The Outage & Storm Center also contains important information about severe weather, including guidance on what to do before, during and after a storm.
