Georgia Power Honored With Economic Development Award

ATLANTA, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power has been honored with an Excellence in Economic Development Award by the Site Selectors Guild, a professional association comprising the world's most respected site selection consultants. The award recognizes the utility's work and professionalism across five areas: ingenuity and creativity, mastery of the project process, going above and beyond, political acumen, and bringing a personal, caring touch to projects.

"We're very pleased that the Guild has honored us with this award. Members of the Guild are great partners in the strategic location decision process and we value our relationship with each of them," said Pedro Cherry, Georgia Power's vice president of Community and Economic Development. "The award is a testament to the professionalism and hard work our team demonstrates day after day. More importantly, this is great recognition of our efforts to continuously add value for all of the citizens and communities in Georgia."

The annual Guild awards distinguish individuals and organizations for having made a significant difference in the lives of people and the community as a whole. The Guild awards include four categories: Small Town EDO (economic development organization), State EDO, Utility EDO and Special Jurisdiction EDO.

Georgia Power was nominated by Wadley Donovan Gutshaw Consulting and by Deloitte Consulting. The company has worked extensively with the two consulting firms on various economic development projects.

Georgia Power's Community and Economic Development department has more than 85 years of experience helping new and expanding businesses grow in Georgia. The team has helped bring more than 202,000 new jobs and almost $30 billion in capital investment to the state over the past two decades.

Georgia Power is the largest subsidiary of Southern Company, one of the nation's largest generators of electricity. The company is an investor-owned, tax-paying utility with rates below the national average. Georgia Power serves 2.4 million customers in all but four of Georgia's 159 counties.
