Georgia residents can quickly and easily in Georgia Power’s Smart Solar program. By agreeing to pay one cent per kilowatt-hour more than the standard rate, they can promote solar energy without installing a rooftop solar system on their homes.
Making it easier and more affordable to install rooftop solar systems on homes, businesses, government and military properties, and nonprofits and churches across the state, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed into law the Solar Power Free Market Financing Act. Representing a welcome change in Georgia, the new consensus legislation is considered an important victory […]
We might expect to hear that the solar power industry is doing well in California and it is, but the latest news is that it is growing fast in other states as well.

This was proposed by Lauren McDonald and was passed with a vote of 3-2. Incidentally, a lot of support came from […]
A new solar energy bill in the US state of Georgia has been submitted, “Rural Georgia Economic Recovery and Solar Resource Act of 2014.” This bill would create a new model for generation and distribution of electricity, allowing the Public Service Commission to authorize and establish a rural community solar initiative and oversee and manage the expansion of solar energy in the […]
