Georgia Power restores service to 110,000+ customers Sunday


ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Managing through waves of high winds, snow and freezing rain, thousands of Georgia Power workers are restoring power for customers Sunday as Winter Storm Izzy continues through the state. Crews are repairing downed power lines and damaged poles caused by high winds, fallen trees and ice accumulations. The majority of the 24,000 current customer outages are in Northeast Georgia, which has seen the most snowfall and highest winds from Izzy, and additional winter weather and sub-freezing temperatures are expected overnight.

Georgia Power crews focus on repairs that return power to the greatest number of customers in the least amount of time, as well as instances that pose a threat to public health or safety. Crews are in the field and restoration work will continue until all customers who can be reconnected have their power restored. To learn more about Georgia Power's estimated times of restoration, how crews restore power after a storm and other frequently asked questions, visit Georgia Power's Outage and Storm Center website.
