Marginally Priced

Marginally Priced
Rates

If you can avoid using electricity when hourly prices are at peak levels and have an electricity demand greater than 250 kW, you could be eligible for potential savings. With Marginally Priced rates, Georgia Power provides a financial incentive to change your electricity usage habits to take advantage of lower-priced hours and avoid heavy usage during higher-priced hours. Typically, customers in this group include large commercial and industrial customers, national chains, department stores, airports, some schools and universities, convention and trade centers, large office buildings, stadiums, and manufacturing facilities. If you fall into the Marginally Priced segment, we encourage you to contact your designated account representative.
