ATLANTA April 26, 2012
This year, Georgia Power collected 107,657 pledges from consumers through local offices, energy efficiency fairs and community outreach events.
An ENERGY STAR partner since 2004, Georgia Power has exchanged more than 680,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) with customers for pledges since participating in its first EPA annual pledge campaign in 2006.
The company previously held the first place ranking in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. Georgia Power has consistently ranked among the top three in the national pledge campaign all six years of its participation.
"This six-year campaign continues to engage and educate more than 100,000 customers annually on ways they can lower their energy costs and energy consumption," said Strickland. "Not only that, but it also gives us great opportunities to talk with our customers one-on-one and provide them with energy- and money-saving solutions."
The Change the World pledge campaign is a part of Georgia Power’s EarthCents initiative, a portfolio of energy efficiency programs created to help residential and business customers save money, use energy efficiently and help the environment.
