Georgia Power’s smart meter rollout continues

[img:Georgia_0.jpg| ]Atlanta, GA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- June 27, 2008 – Georgia Power, a Southern Company, began the deployment of smart meters in January 2008, with a view to installing 400,000 meters by the end of the year. They are read remotely through communication towers, and offer benefits to both the utility and its customers.

The meters are being installed free of charge, and Georgia Power expects that the detailed energy usage information and rate options that will be available to customers will allow them to better manage energy use, and thus become more energy efficient. Other benefits include a reduction in the time needed to handle service orders, such as starting or stopping power; improved management of power restoration after outages; availability of energy usage information online; and reduced energy theft.

Georgia Power to pilot prepay electric service

[img:Georgia_0.jpg| ]Atlanta, GA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- January 23, 2012 - Georgia Power is to undertake a pilot with PayGo Electric™ to study the commercial feasibility of providing the option of a prepaid electric service to customers.

PayGo's patent pending technology embeds logic in the communications modules, the smart meter, or the system servers, which can alert both the customer and the utility of the need to add credit to a customer's account for continued electric service. The system can leverage a utility's existing assets while it includes a nationwide payment processing platform enabling utilities to use existing as well as new payment methods for their customers. This allows customers to be continuously informed of their account status and enables them to pay for their electricity on a schedule which best fits their needs.

Georgia Power’s FlatBill Exceeds Customer Expectations

While fixed billing – all you can eat pricing – isn’t a new idea (think cable TV, local phone, and Internet service) it remains a revolutionary concept in the residential and commercial energy industry. In fact few, if any, energy marketing programmes have ever achieved the diverse and broadbased goals of a fixed bill-type programme.

That is, until two years ago, when the uniquely modelled FlatBillTM programme rolled out across Georgia from Georgia Power Company, the Southern Company’s largest operating entity. This innovative rate plan as developed after customer research indicated customers wanted – and would pay a premium for – just such a payment option.
