ATLANTA, Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power has made it even easier to find a place to pay in person at thousands of Authorized Payment Locations (APLs) in retail and grocery stores across the state. The company's new text-to-find feature allows customers to text GPPay to 99123 from any web-enabled mobile device to instantly receive a link to the Online Customer Care payment locator which will help them locate the nearest APL.

"Every day, we know that thousands of our customers need to find time in their very busy schedules to make a payment and this text-to-find tool lets them find a place to pay quickly and easily wherever they may travel throughout Georgia."
