Georgia Power 'On the Go' with New Mobile App

Free app for Apple and Android devices delivers most popular content directly to customers

Georgia Power has launched its new mobile app for smartphones and tablets. The app, which can be downloaded for free from both the App Store (Apple) and Google Play Store (Android), offers customers a fast, convenient new way to connect with the company. In addition to providing account information and mobile bill payment, the app integrates immediate access to some of the company's most popular online resources including outage reporting and customized information on monthly and annual energy use.

The development of the mobile app builds on the company's other mobile tools, including a mobile-optimized version of www.GeorgiaPower.com, and is the latest way the company is working to make doing business with the company easier.

"Our customers are increasingly using smartphones and tablets to simplify their lives, including streamlining their interactions with businesses," said Louise Scott, vice president of customer service for Georgia Power. "The new Georgia Power app is a great addition to our overall customer experience, bringing our uncompromised commitment to best-in-class customer service to the mobile space."

With the new Georgia Power mobile app, customers are able to: 

  • Check their account balance and make payments.
  • View current and past energy usage, as well as average daily energy costs.
  • Report and check the status of an outage.
  • Find a local Georgia Power office or Authorized Payment Location nearby.

With thousands of customer visits to GeorgiaPower.com each day, and more than a quarter million customers paying their bills online each month, the company is focused on exceeding customer expectations in the digital world. Georgia Power's enhanced online and mobile offerings also include My Power Usage, which helps customers track their energy use and anticipate their bill, online Outage Maps and Outage Alerts and upgrades to GeorgiaPower.com featuring assistive technology which makes the website easier for customers with disabilities to navigate.
