Georgia Power ordered to refund over $43M to its customers

ATLANTA — ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Power has been ordered to refund more than $43 million to its customers.

News outlets report that the Georgia Public Service Commission has ordered Georgia Power to refund $43.6 million to its customers.

The commission says the refunds are the result of the company earning above its commission-approved return on equity for the calendar year 2016 under terms of the commission's order in a 2013 power rate case.

The exact amount per customer and the date of the refunds will be determined in a later filing.
