About MEAG Power

The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG Power) is a nonprofit, statewide generation and transmission organization. Recognized as one of the leading joint action agencies in the country, MEAG Power is among the top public power companies nationwide in terms of annual net generation, megawatt-hour sales and electric revenue. Its diverse, clean energy portfolio – delivering 67% emissions-free energy in 2019 – compares favorably with both the state and national averages. Created by the Georgia General Assembly in 1975, MEAG Power provides reliable, competitive wholesale electricity to its 49 member communities (Participants), who own their local distribution systems, through take-or-pay contracts. MEAG Power also monitors and advocates on energy issues at the state and federal levels on behalf of its Participants.

MEAG Power has more than $11 billion in assets and delivered 10.8 million MWh of electricity in 2019 through a generation fleet with a capacity of more than 2,000 MW. MEAG Power owns more than 1,300 miles of high-voltage transmission lines and nearly 200 substations. Its generation fleet includes co-ownership of two nuclear and two coal-fired generating plants and sole ownership of a natural gas combined cycle facility. MEAG Power is also a co-owner of the new nuclear Plant Vogtle Units 3&4, estimated to come online in 2021 and 2022.
