Georgia Power announced the opening of a new Customer Resource Center at the company's North Shallowford operating headquarters in Atlanta. The resource center is a LEED-certified, experiential facility that offers business and commercial customers a hands-on learning experience about the many benefits of electric end use products.
The facility showcases the advantages of electrotechnologies through the demonstration of a variety of products including electric vehicles, the latest in electric cooking technologies, energy efficient electric appliances, manufacturing and industrial uses, such as motors and heating technologies.
Converted from existing Georgia Power office space, the resource center is designed to equip the company's customers with the tools and information they need to improve productivity through energy efficiency, identify ways to better manage the use of electricity in their businesses and interact with the latest in all-electric products and applications. In addition, the center will serve as a training resource for Georgia Power employees, as well as industry allies and associations.
From the groundbreaking in mid-2013, the resource center took less than a year to complete. The facility represents a more than $1 million investment from Georgia Power and also includes $500,000 in contributed equipment and materials from trade allies and partners.
