Utility barriers to rooftop solar in Georgia

The State of Georgia has received much recognition over the course of the last few years for the rapid expansion of solar capacity in the State. In July, Georgia’s Public Service Commission approved a plan for the State’s largest investor-owned utility Georgia Power that will continue this trend and add another 2,260 MW of renewables, mostly from solar, by 2024. The decision will increase Georgia Power’s renewable portfolio by 72%. Many of the State’s rural electric cooperatives like Walton EMC and Cobb EMC are equally enthusiastic about solar, having invested in thousands of MW of new solar capacity to drive down the cost of electricity for their customers and to service the sustainability goals of large corporate off-takers.
