In Georgia Power's 2016 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) the Georgia Public Service Commission (GPSC) authorized the development of a Commercial and Industrial (C&I) customer renewable program that would allow Georgia Power to procure up to 200 MW of additional renewable generation through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) that C&I customers could utilize to support their sustainability initiatives.
Georgia Power will develop projects from the Renewable Energy Development Initiative (REDI) utility scale RFP on behalf of C&I customer participants, who will sign a 10-30 year contract. Participating customers will purchase the renewable facility production at a fixed Portfolio Price and receive Hourly Credit based on production from the PPA(s). Hourly credits will be based on Georgia Power's hourly cost of incremental generation.
The program is designed for Georgia Power C&I customers with aggressive renewable energy goals and a need for renewable energy credits (RECs). To qualify, the customer must have an aggregate 2016 peak demand of 3 MW or greater. Aggregated accounts must be under common ownership and control. In order to apply, eligible customers must subscribe to the program through a Notice of Intent (NOI) Application process, which will be open September 1 until September 25, 2017.
