Georgia Fights Extinction

Rather than witness the breakup of LDCs into multiple, feeble entities, Georgia seeks to empower them to compete in the post-Order 636 world to the benefit of all stakeholders. Georgia's regulators and legislators are considering:

. Allowing LDCs to profit on the commodity cost of gas

. Sharing risks and rewards between ratepayers and stockholders.
