Georgia Power Co. has launched a new fleet of plug-in electric hybrid Chevrolet Volts.
The company has added 32 new electrified vehicles to its fleet, demonstrating flexibility of driving electric.
Georgia Power chairman, president and CEO Paul Bowers said: “We are leading by example and demonstrating to our customers, and other Georgia businesses, that electric transportation works for all drivers. Through constructive regulation, and partnerships with organizations like the EV Club of the South, we are growing the EV market in Georgia and helping our customers reap the overwhelming benefits of driving electric.”
The new, Georgia Power-branded Chevrolet Volt EVs will be highly visible in local communities from Savannah to Columbus to Rome and will be driven daily by Georgia Power employees as they serve customers. The EVs will be used primarily by the company’s energy efficiency experts as they travel to conduct energy audits at homes and businesses, a service provided to help Georgia Power customers save money and energy.
In 2014, Georgia Power launched a new electric transportation initiative to advance Georgia as an exceptionally EV-friendly state through its Get Current. Drive Electric program. The program currently includes an ongoing public education campaign, EV charger rebates for business and residential customers and special rates and charging options for EV customers.
Georgia Power is dedicated to developing products and services which meet the needs of customers, including an increasing interest in EVs and electric transportation options.
