Georgia Power is fully committed to the research and development of cost-effective renewable energy resources, and actively supports research and development of solar energy resources in an effort to better understand how the development of distributed generation solar will affect the safety and reliability of the existing electric grid.

Georgia Power's Solar Demonstration Project

Housed on the roof of Georgia Power's headquarters, the Rooftop Solar Demonstration Project features eight arrays and six different panel types, three inverter types, which convert solar power from DC to AC current, and two different array orientations. Nearly 44 kW total can be generated from the arrays, with a 15 kW AC-coupled battery. The energy generated by the PV panels will partially offset the electricity needs of Georgia Power's corporate headquarters.

This Solar Demonstration Project is part of Georgia Power's ongoing commitment to evaluate various aspects of solar to assist in educating customers on solar as a possible renewable resource.

REC Disclaimer: A Renewable Energy Certificate (REC), sometimes called a renewable energy credit, represents the renewable attributes of energy produced from a renewable energy facility. RECs are considered a commodity and can be sold or traded separately from the actual energy. Georgia Power purchases only the null energy output from the renewable generating facilities that have contracted to sell energy from their solar facilities through the Large Scale Solar (LSS) program and the initial (2013/2014) Advance Solar Initiative (ASI). The sole ownership of RECs belong to each generating facility, as specifically stated in each respective power purchase agreement (PPA). The original intent of these programs was to grow renewable resources in Georgia, while allowing the generating facilities to retain the benefits of the RECs. Georgia Power does not report emission reductions from the null energy purchased through PPAs that do not bundle the RECs for sale to Georgia Power.
