The communications tools we implemented for Southern Companies Gulf Power and Georgia Power have faced their first major tests in the past couple of months, as severe ice storms battered the southeastern United States. The storm on January 28-29 challenged Gulf Power’s outage map, while the storm that started on February 11 provided an even bigger challenge for Georgia Power’s outage map and alert system. Gulf Power’s outage map was viewed by over 30,000 unique visitors on January 28-29, with Safari, Android, and Chrome being the most popular browsers for accessing the map. The ice storm that began impacting Georgia Power customers on February 12 was “one of the most severe ice and snow storms to reach the state in the last decade,” according to a press release that the Company issued on February 16. Georgia Power’s outage map was an important resource for customers during the storm: between February 12 and February 16, the outage map received nearly 830,000 visits from over 450,000 unique visitors. Georgia Power’s outage map from February 12 shows the large number of outages, as well as the storms, ice, and snow affecting a large area of the Southeast. Georgia Power used the Alert banner on its outage map to provide customers with general updates on restoration progress.
In addition to its outage map, Georgia Power uses the iFactor Notifi alerts and preference management system to provide automated messages to its customers about topics including outages. Georgia Power posted photos of storm damage to Facebook to help customers understand some of the reasons for delayed restoration. Approximately 8,200 Southern Company employees, contractors, and mutual assistance partners supported the restoration. These figures demonstrate both the scope of the storm and one of the particular challenges of restoration after a severe storm: the aftermath of the storm continued to cause outages while Georgia Power was working to restore power.

For both Gulf Power and Georgia Power, these ice storms required sustained coordination of response efforts, involving miles of roads and power lines and thousands of workers and pieces of equipment.
