Deregulate the energy market in Georgia

The recent price hikes and extensive construction riders give Southern Company a guaranteed profit of almost 12% per year. They are wanting easier rate increases on an automatic basis. People of Middle and South GA have no utility choice unless they are in rural areas covered by EMC . North GA residents are serviced by So. Co. and municipally owned power generation companies.

Waste is astronomical at Southern Company Operations and the public gets to pay for the frivolous spending while So. Co. is guaranteed a good margin.

Please deregulate the Georgia Power market! Let's be the 25th state to have a deregulated energy market.
