Deregulation of Electricity in Georgia

    1. Thomas Altman
    2. Petition by

      Thomas Altman

      Roswell, GA

The consumer today has no choice in Georgia for electricity, therefore there is no competition and we have to pay what the monopoly Georgia Power says to pay, which is second highest per kilowatt in the US!! Case in point look at the state of Texas, and the choices the consumer has overall due to the choice, competition has lowered the average per kilowatt charged! Help us change our electricity bills like other states are already taking advantage of energy deregulation - see TX, PA, NJ, NY, MD and even Washington, D.C.!

    6. Here is a great article regarding natural gas deregulation here in GA

      This link will point to the benefits of deregulating electricity just like natural gas was deregulated in 2002.
      When I moved to GA in 1998, I had no choice and was paying 1.37 per therm since deregulation; I am now paying .3990 per therm the lowest I have ever paid since the law was passed-There is more competion and this allows the consumer more choices and better customer service too.

      Because i think that if it is not mandatory for you to use certain companies then maybe they will offer better rates.

      Georgia Power is ridiculous on there power bills. I've gotten so far behind that I can't get my balance zeroed out and it seems like no matter how much I pay on the bill it never goes below $600.
