Georgia Power monitoring weather conditions

As the temperatures continued to plummet Tuesday, Georgia Power officials said they are monitoring weather conditions around the state and are ready for the predicted record-low temperatures, said spokeswoman Carol A. Boatright. 

 “In preparation for high demand, we’ve brought additional generation online to ensure adequate and reliable supplies of electricity,” she said Tuesday afternoon. “Our control centers will carefully monitor power loads on circuits, and crews and engineering teams are being kept on call in the event heavy loads cause isolated outages over the next 24 hours.” 

She noted: 

 • Customers can view reported outages across the state, as well as estimated restoration times, at www.georgiapower.com/storm. They can also report a new outage and sign up for email or phone alerts for the latest information.

• Customers can always report or check the status of an outage via phone at 1-888-891-0938.

• Georgia Power has posted a variety of useful information and tips for preparing your home for winter weather at www.georgiapower.com
