Public & Private Utility Companies

In the case of publicly owned Utilities, the assets of the Utility are owned by the Atlanta Government Utilities Department, but it operates as a self-sustaining public enterprise supported by its own revenues rather than relying on taxes to fund operations.

Public Utilities Commissions in Atlanta, Georgia

In Georgia, Utilities are regulated by the Public Services Commissions or Public Utilities Commission. Public Services Commissions are necessary when monopolies exist or in cases where competition is very limited, to ensure that Atlanta consumers receive safe, reliable, and reasonably priced services from competent and financially viable companies. Atlanta Utilities must receive approval for the rates they charge and they are also required to demonstrate to the Atlanta Public Services Commission that they have plans to maintain an infrastructure capable of supporting current and future demand for services.

Electric Utilities

Only one system for transmitting and delivering electricity to customers is feasible in a given service area such as, GA. Therefore, transmission and distribution of electricity operates as a monopoly and customers do not have a choice when selecting their Atlanta electric power company. However, the electricity in the Atlanta electric grid may come from numerous suppliers.

Sewer Utilities

Atlanta Sewer Service Companies receive wastewater from customers via sanitary sewers at a wastewater treatment plant. The Sewer Utility treats the wastewater to reduce pollutants before it is released into waterways.

Natural Gas Utilities
