Home / Site Selection / Utilities


Home to the Athena Industrial Park, Athens understands the crucial role that utilities play in operational success of a facility. Finding a competitive rate with a local utility provider is easy as Athens’ industrial consumers have the ability to choose their electric provider upon selecting Athens, Georgia as their new home. In addition to competitive rates on electric and gas, Athens County operated Water and Sewer currently runs far below its maximum capacity, leaving large amounts of space for you or your client’s future expansions.
