发电是一个复杂的过程. 尽管复杂, Georgia Power knows it is important for our customers to have a general understanding of how our power generation works. Georgia Power relies on a sophisticated system to deliver electricity to our customers. See below for a summary of how the generating stations, substations and power lines work together.
为我们的2.400万客户从我们的18个发电厂开始. The diversity of fuels that Georgia Power offers allows a reliable power supply for customers. Get an overview of our different plants and how they produce energy by watching this short video.
把输电线路想象成电力的高速公路. 更小的配电线路连接到建筑，比如当地的街道. 从发电站, large amounts of electricity are transported on high-voltage transmission lines to local substations.
输电投资对于安全可靠的服务至关重要. We're investing $3 billion on electrical system upgrades over the next few years.
变电站 are banks of electrical equipment that convert the transmission line voltage to lower levels that are appropriate for use in local communities. 变电站 also control the flow of electricity and protect the lines and equipment from damage.
分布电线, 哪一种可以安装在地上或地下, 携带4之间,000年,25,给你的邻居提供000伏特的电力.
A transformer converts the high distribution-level voltage to lower voltage levels (120 to 480 volts) that can be used inside your home or business. 电压经过仔细测量，以满足客户的需求. 变压器可以安装在电杆上，也可以放置在地面上.
