Dear <<First Name>>,
Don’t Be Fooled: Georgia Power’s Smart Usage Rate is Bad.
Have you moved into a newly constructed home, apartment or condo since January 1, 2021? Congratulations! It feels great to move into a brand-new place with new floors, appliances, fixtures and lighting. Here is something that won’t feel great: you were probably enrolled on Georgia Power’s “Smart Usage” rate plan, and that means your electricity bills are 50-100% higher than they should be.
This rate plan is actually a demand charge rate plan, which is known to be more expensive for people living in small and medium dwellings because there is a large monthly demand fee. And this fee is hidden from you on your bill.
It is possible to pay less if you live in a large home and you have an energy management system or automated your appliances and devices to match the rate plan’s charging structure. Most people can’t do that.
We are looking for people on this rate plan to compare your electric bills to what you would have paid on the traditional rate plan.
To learn more about this rate plan, you can read my blog here.
