Hundreds of Georgia Power employees, community and business leaders gathered for a special event around a new fleet of plug-in electric hybrid Chevrolet Volts.

Georgia Power has added 32 new electric vehicles to the company's fleet.

The new, Georgia Power-branded Chevy Volts 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 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.
