Custom Savings Program

Getting ready for a big building project?

Get up to $75,000 per building per year to offset costs for your energy-saving upgrades.

Rebates for your energy-savings building projects.

Your building is unique, and so are your energy-saving needs. If your new construction or facility improvement projects don’t fit into the parameters of our other money-saving programs, you may still earn rebates with our Custom Savings Program. In fact, Georgia Power gives you rebates based on your custom project’s estimated energy savings – up to $75,000 per building per year up to 50% of the project cost.
