Gulf Power & Southern Co. - How to Contact about Smart Meters

Submitted by Smart Meter Matrix on Mon, 10/24/2011 - 18:18


Mailing address for Gulf Power correspondence about smart meters is the corporate headquarters of its parent company:

The Southern Company
30 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. NW
Atlanta, GA 30308
(404) 506-5000

Found here: - Found no mailing address for Southern Company or Gulf Power at their own websites (usually don't want to use payment address for correspondence).

Address your letter to the contact name / title you think best (and can cc: other names). Here are two from this link:

Thomas A. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, Southern Company

Mark A. Crosswhite, President and Chief Executive Officer, Gulf Power Company

It is worth the extra cost to mail all letters ”certified mail” with return receipt so it has the best chance of getting on (and staying on) the record. It will be very helpful to have your written correspondence on file. Request or demand the choice to opt-out permanently from having a wireless 2-way RF microwave device on your home or business.
