Through their actions, Georgia Transmission’s employees show they care about the environment, historic preservation and people in need. Some examples:
We are known for aggressive environmental protection. Our management insists on rigorous environmental analyses and close coordination with state and federal regulators to minimize the effects of facility construction and operations. We contribute to programs that improve wildlife habitats and conservation along our more than 3,000 miles of transmission lines.
Georgia Transmission teamed with the Electric Power Research Institute, a national research group, and created a national model for analyzing environmental, community and engineering conditions to select the best locations for new transmission power lines. Our approach has been praised in the industry press and it has been adopted by other utilities.
We supported the state Department of Natural Resources’ research to determine the best land-management practices for butterfly habitats, including work with experimental feed plots.
We participate in Wildlife Incentives for Non-game and Game Species (WINGS), a program designed to create new wildlife habitat on electrical transmission line rights of way (ROW).
We raise money for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Conservation Fund to support non-game wildlife conservation.
We help fund a joint effort with the State Historic Preservation Office and the University of Georgia for documenting historic and cultural resources throughout Georgia.
We contribute to a non-government funded program that studies and creates inventories of rare plant and animal species.
Employees regularly support the Red Cross, the March of Dimes, the Boys and Girls Clubs, the United Way, the Salvation Army’s Angel Program and other worthy groups.
