Utilities


Make more in Meriwether.


Attractive costs and capacity promote greater productivity and profitability.
 


Power:

Pioneering power is a tradition here in Meriwether County. Franklin Roosevelt said it himself, when he remarked in a speech, “It can be said that a little cottage at Warm Springs, Georgia, was the birthplace of the Rural Electrification Administration."

Today, our power companies are still leading the way in helping industry control one of the most important cost factors in the manufacturing process, while providing crucial reliability. And here in Meriwether, in addition to low costs and high reliability, industrial customers requiring large loads (an initial connected load of 900 kilowatts or more) also enjoy choice in providers. Depending on location and usage, those providers include:

Georgia Power: For more than a century Georgia Power has been a low-cost leader in reliable power, and today the company is stepping up with important sustainability efforts, and innovative solutions for industrial customers, including marginally priced plans.

Diverse Power: Also founded in the 1930s, Diverse Power, today a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, also offers reliable service at attractive rates for a broad customer base.
 



Natural gas:

Gas for Meriwether industrial parks is provided by the City of Manchester.

Water and sewer capacity:

While we’ve been known around the world for the healing properties of our water, our attractive water costs combined with excellent water capacity make for the kind of fiscal fitness and healthy bottom lines that today’s global industry demands. In Meriwether Park, a 500,000-gallon water tank provides ample excess capacity if needed, while water and sewer services are provided by the City of Hogansville.



Fiber:

Meriwether’s on-going upgrade of the county’s data infrastructure is leading to a future of unparalleled connection for both residents and industry.
