Georgia Power's Real Time Pricing (RTP)
Georgia Power offers a variety of innovative rate options for customers to choose from so that they can select the one that will best meet their needs. Real Time Pricing (RTP) is an option that provides large commercial and industrial customers the ability to purchase a portion of new incremental load at hourly marginal prices. By having access to these hourly prices, customers that have the operational flexibility can avoid higher priced hours by shifting their load to lower cost hours. RTP has served as one of the most economical rate options for some of our largest customers, providing them with the opportunity to enhance their competitiveness and continue to access marginal pricing for potential load growth.
