Solar energy is a renewable and emissions-free energy source that can be an excellent option for businesses and should be considered a long-term investment in sustainability. While Georgia Power does not recommend or endorse any particular third-party installer, we are happy to help you understand all aspects of your potential solar project. Before beginning any solar installation, we recommend obtaining at least three proposals from installers, as pricing and financing may differ for each company.
• If your roof needs to be repaired or replaced, this should be done before solar is installed.
• Ensure your rooftop receives adequate sunlight throughout the day.
• South-facing panels will receive the most sun.
• You may still have to pay a monthly fee for your system if it was financed.
• You will still receive a bill from Georgia Power and your financing company if the system was financed.
There are a few options for landowners and the solar programs currently available.
Market pricing for panels and installation is about $1.20-3.50/Watt. Typically, 5-7 acres fits about 1 MW of solar panels. This assumes 1 MW could cost between $1,200,000-$3,500,000. A larger installation size typically reflects a lower price/watt.
In addition to the federal tax credit for installing solar, you may be able to take advantage of other rebates and incentives for renewables and energy efficiency.Learn More
