One of the most important utilities provided to any community is its electrical energy. The City of Fort Valley electric department ensures a reliable and economical source of energy for all its customers - residences, schools, institutions, businesses and industry throughout its service area. The lifestyle of the city's residents depends on it; businesses stake their productivity and profits on it. Energy is purchased through the Municipal Electrical Authority of Georgia (MEAG), an organization of 49 member cities. Our electric rates are in the lowest range of other Georgia providers as referenced in the Georgia Public Service Commission's Quarterly Electric Rate Report.
The electric department provides an average of 40 million kilowatt hours of electrical energy monthly to its customers through a network of 150 miles of wire and 4,000 poles, along with significant number of fuses, transformers, and other essential electrical infrastructure elements. We also operate a three megawatt diesel/natural gas peaking unit to keep costs low during the summer high demand season.
Our five linemen maintain substation key certifications and always respond immediately to outages and storm damage, even in the worse weather.
