Public Service Commission (PSC)
What can I do?
You can be a part of the process to help define Georgia's energy future,
right now. As Georgia Power begins the process of defending their
Integrated Resource Plan, we need you to remind the Public Service Commission of the benefits
of retiring coal fired power plants, energy efficiency and renewable energy. There are significant
opportunities here in Georgia to embrace efficiency and renewable energy, read more about it here.
We need you to:
1. Contact the Commissioners and ask them to approve Georgia Power’s
proposed coal retirements and support expanded energy efficiency
and renewable energy programs. Click here for PSC contact info. You
can inform the commissioners of your position by
writing or calling the PSC or by submitting a petition.
2. Mark your calendar to attend the Public Service Commission hearings on April 16-17, May 21-22, and June 18-19.
Write a letter to the editor of your newspaper supporting the
transition away from coal and supporting expanded energy efficiency
What is the Public Service Commission (PSC)?
The mission of the PSC is to “exercise its authority and
influence to ensure that consumers receive safe, reliable and reasonably
priced telecommunications, transportation, electric and natural gas
services from financially viable and technically competent companies.”
Five elected Commissioners, supported by approximately 100 staff, make
decisions that affect the lives of every Georgian each time a telephone
is picked up, a light is turned on, a gas burner is used.
What does that mean for me?
The decisions the PSC makes affect how much you will pay for
electricity, telephone and gas. This means that the PSC means a lot,
very few governmental agencies have as much impact on your life as does
