When will my power be released to Georgia Power?
Once you have completed an electrical final, your inspector will notify the Electrical Principal who is responsible for sending the necessary paperwork to Georgia Power via fax. This is usually done within one business day after you pass your final inspection. If your structure is in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), the 100 year floodplain, you may need to submit a "Finish Construction" Elevation Certificate or other documentation prior to the power release. Ask your Building or Electrical Inspector, or contact the City's Floodplain Administrator, Tom McDonald, at (912) 651-6530 if you are unsure the structure is in the SFHA.
