GA Power bill costs could be reduced

(WTVM) - Who wouldn't like some extra cash? Georgia Power customers could see some in a few months.

The company filed a request with the Georgia Public Service Commission to reduce fuel rates because of a reduction in the price of natural gas that Georgia Power uses.

Georgia Power is required by law to pass the fuel savings along to customers.

For the average customer who uses an average of 1000 kilowatt-hours a month, you can expect to save $4 off your monthly bill.

Customers could see that four dollar savings as early as the first of next year, pending the commission's approval.

"The PSC ultimately decides," said Stan Sparks with Georgia Power. "Generally they see these sort of filings as good for the state, good for consumers. And we are very hopeful that it will be approved, then we'll be able to pass these savings on to customers very quickly."

The Georgia Public Service Commission's decision will likely happen on or around December 15.
