Our Carbon Free Energy Calculator considers your kWh usage and your business' carbon free energy goals.

Reduce your carbon footprint with RECs

No solar panels required

There is no way to distinguish what part of the electricity at your location came from what energy source in our diverse fuel portfolio. The only way we have of tracking our renewable energy once it connects to the grid is through Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).

1. We source energy + RECs

A Renewable Energy Credit (REC) is generated for every 1MWh of energy produced from renewable energy sources.

2. You purchase the RECs

Every month you'll receive a certificate for the value of RECs purchased through one of our solar programs.

3. You claim the renewable energy

We retire the RECs on your behalf, and you claim the energy credits to help meet your sustainability goals.

Developing the most effective solar projects

Georgia Power has programs to meet the needs of both customers and solar developers that want to enter into long-term contracts. In our Distributed Generation and Utility Scale programs, Georgia Power purchases 100% of the renewable energy generated. 


Distributed Generation

Our Distributed Generation programs allow customers and solar developers to enter into long-term contracts for projects ranging from 250kW to 6MW, in which Georgia Power purchases 100% of the renewable energy generated from the solar facility. 


  • Smaller-scale projects sized up to 6MW
  • Separately metered solar facilities connected to Georgia Power's distribution system
  • Long-term PPAs to purchase 100% of the renewable energy generated
  • An Interactive map showing an estimate of grid capacity and an optional guidance program to assist in determining project feasibility are both available to assist you!
