Georgia Power customers will see a $18 reduction in their October bills, this according to a release from the company.
The typical residential power customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month will receive an estimated $13 credit on their bill. This reflects implementation
of a one-time, $61.6 million credit for customers, approved in September by the Georgia Public Service Commission as a result of Georgia Power’s 2019 financial results.
Pairing the October credit with lower fuel rates implemented at the beginning of summer, the typical residential customer will see a reduction of more than $18 this month.
The amount each customer receives will vary based on 2019 usage. Georgia Power will apply the credit to the October bills of customers who had active accounts as of December 31, 2019 and are still active or receiving a final bill as of October 2020.
This is the third credit that customers will receive this year for a total of more than $46 for the typical residential customer.
