be aware of telephone scams!
It has come to our attention that telephone scammers are falsely identifying themselves as Power Commission staff, telling customers their bills must be paid immediately to avoid disconnection, and requesting customer’s payment information.
While the Power Commission sends out an automated courtesy call to remind customers of past due balances the courtesy call does not demand immediate payment. Customers wanting to pay by phone should initiate the call to the Power Commission.
NEW DRIVE THRU HOURS EFFECTIVE MAY 3, 2021
Effective May 3, 2021, Crisp County Power Commission’s drive thru will be open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday excluding holidays.

NEW IVR PHONE SYSTEM 11/18/19!
We are introducing our new Integrated Voice Response system (IVR) on November 18th! The new IVR system integrates with our Outage Management System (OMS) to help us provide faster, more accurate detection and analysis of service interruptions which will help us respond faster to both individual outages and system-wide disturbances. Outages reported by the IVR system are logged into the OMS system in real-time. In addition – coming soon! – the new IVR system will be able to notify customers if the OMS system is aware of their outage and provide customers with an estimated time of restoration.
The new IVR phone system has a high capacity to handle multiple outage calls so we encourage all customers with an outage to report their outage using this new, easy-to-use system.
The new IVR system uses caller id to look up customer account information so please verify the phone number printed on your bill is accurate. Customers can change their phone number using our online portal, our mobile app, or by calling our Customer Service Department at 229-273-3811.

Please click here for more information.
If you have any questions or if would like to sign up for Prepay Metering please contact our Customer Service Department at 229-273-3811.
