Clean And Renewable Energy Subscription

Georgia Power’s Clean And Renewable Energy Subscription (CARES) Program allows commercial and industrial (C&I) customers to support their sustainability initiatives. Georgia Power will procure 2,100 megawatts (MW) of new renewable resources for subscription through the CARES Program.

Participating customers are able to purchase a subscription for a pro-rata share of the production of renewable resources procured through the Company’s utility-scale renewable requests for proposals (“RFPs”) process. Georgia Power will retire the RECs on behalf of participating customers, allowing customers to receive the environmental benefits associated with their pro-rata share of the energy produced by the program resources.
