Georgia Power Announces Estimated Restoration Times, Says Efforts Ahead of Schedule

Georgia Power today announced regional estimated restoration times (ERTs) for all areas of the state following Hurricane Irma. The hurricane, one of the strongest and largest storms to strike Georgia in decades, brought high winds, heavy rain and flooding to every county in the state and impacted service to nearly 1 million Georgia Power customers.

As of Thursday morning, the company has restored power to 830,000 customers, with 155,000 customers remaining to be restored. Nearly 8,000 personnel are now engaged in Georgia Power’s statewide restoration effort and the company’s statewide restoration efforts are advancing ahead of schedule. The company now estimates that 95 percent of all customers impacted by Hurricane Irma, who can accept power, will have power restored by Saturday night – approximately 24 hours ahead of schedule.

Detailed ERTs for dozens of cities are available at outagemap.georgiapower.com.

The company says it will regularly update the Outage Map and other customer notification resources during the remainder of the Hurricane Irma restoration process with any changes in these ERTs.
