Atlanta Hones in on Energy Efficiency Amid Uncertainty from Georgia Power

As the Atlanta metro area was dealing with an interstate collapse, an interstate upheaval and a special election heretofore unheard of, energy watchers were eyeing the news from Toshiba that it was filing bankruptcy for its subsidiary, Westinghouse Electric Company.
