Why you need to keep South Metro Atlanta on your radar

The team at Georgia Power Community & Economic Development discusses growth in the region with local communities.

“If the City of Jonesboro had two arms, one would be Jonesboro and the other Georgia Power. When we both connected and shook hands, we were able to continue to effect change for every last individual that travels through this community.”
