ATLANTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Georgia Power customers should expect to see a decrease in their bill in the coming year.

Begining in April 2018, a typical customer who uses 1,000 kWh/hour will pay $2.70 less on their bill.

This announcement comes after Georgia Power filed an update for the Nuclear Construction Cost Recovery (NCCR) tariff with the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC).

In addition, Toshiba's parent guarantee payment contributes to a $75 dollar bill credit for customers as well. The credit is to be distributed across three separate Georgia Power bills in 2018.

In 2016 Georgia Power earned above its 10 to 12 percent earning range. As a result, Georgia Power continues to work with the Georgia Public Service Commission to nail down and time frame for a 2018 refund of more than 40 million dollars.
