Georgia Power aims to electrify portions of its vehicle fleet as part of a corporate-wide, internal fleet electrification goal. Southern Company, the utility’s corporate parent plans to convert 50% of its system fleet vehicles across the auto/SUV/minivan, forklift and ATV/cart/miscellaneous segments by 2030.
Nicole Faulk, Senior Vice President for Corporate and Customer Services, Georgia Power, said: “Our company has long been committed to growing EV infrastructure across the state and supporting customers and businesses looking to go electric. We’re pleased to take that experience and evolve our fleet internally through electrification. As Southern Company’s largest subsidiary, the electrification of Georgia Power’s fleet will play a significant role in helping us achieve this goal corporate-wide.”
The internal fleet goal is part of a larger focus on electrification of the transportation industry and commitment to sustainability and clean energy. With more EVs on Georgia highways every day, Georgia Power is committed to assisting customers with their EV energy needs and advancing Georgia as a top EV-friendly state. The company continues to invest in EV infrastructure statewide and will invest $6 million over the next three years in fast-charging EV infrastructure for the public.
