Overview

The Georgia Generating Station is a 944-megawatt (MW), dual fuel, simple cycle, electric peaking generating station located in Heard County near Franklin, Georgia. Georgia consists of six General Electric (GE) Frame 7FA gas turbine generators used as a peaking facility, producing energy during periods of high demand (such as very hot or cold days). The plant also has the ability to generate power using fuel oil.

Exelon Generation Company, LLC, purchases the entire power output of the plant for marketing in Georgia and throughout the Southeast. Georgia can produce enough power to meet the energy demands of up to 945,000 homes.

Indicative of DGC’s commitment to protect the environment, a 44-acre wetland preservation area, including wood duck nesting boxes and heron nesting platforms, was established adjacent to Georgia.
