Georgia Power’s program for storm restoration


Conference: Metering, Billing/CIS America 2007
Location: San Antonio, TX, USA
Presenter: Steve Lewis
Abstract: Presented by Steve Lewis at Metering, Billing/CIS America 2007

The tools and techniques used to efficiently and safely restore electrical power after an outage event has changed considerably in the past few years. 

Increased expectations of customers for swift power restoration and the level of destruction after severe hurricanes in the recent past have been the major drivers of these changes. 

This presentation will give examples of the improvements and modifications made to both the equipment and software that we use at Georgia Power.  It will also explore the process changes we have incorporated in dispatching manpower and logistics resources to meet our customer expectations.
