ATLANTA - GeorgiaChron -- The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) announced that Schneider Electric continues to demonstrate its commitment to Georgia's 536 cities as a 2024 GMA Business Alliance Program (BAP) participating company. The BAP connects companies with municipal leaders to share knowledge and expertise to strengthen Georgia's cities and support the mission of GMA.

Local government leaders across Georgia consistently choose Schneider Electric as their trusted partner for infrastructure modernization projects. Last year, Schneider partnered with the City of Canton to implement a turnkey solution through our outcome-driven partnership. This project will break the city's cycle of deferred maintenance and  accelerate the achievement of sustainability goals while maximizing the use of public funds. As a result of this partnership, Canton will preserve and modernize the historic, 100+ year old city hall & public safety complex, develop & adopt a formal sustainability plan, and expand their solar footprint with rooftop solar at city hall & solar displays in city parks.
