Customer-Connected Solar Program

We are pleased to announce the Customer-Connected Solar Program, a 25-megawatt (MW) Distributed Generation customer-sited program. Our new Customer-Connected Solar Program will accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis until the 25 MW Alternating Current (AC) portfolio is filled, or until January 2022, whichever comes first.

 

This program allows Georgia Power customers to partner with any solar developer to build a solar facility on or adjacent to a customer’s property. Georgia Power will purchase 100% of the energy generated and retire the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) associated with a participant’s solar facility on his/her behalf, allowing the customer to claim the renewable benefits of the local solar energy.


Program Requirements

  • The solar facility must be located on or adjacent to a customer’s property.
  • Projects can be sized from 1 kW up to 3 MW AC. The size of a residential customer’s facility is limited to 10 kW.
  • The solar facility size must not exceed 125% of the customer’s peak demand.
  • Georgia Power will accept only one application per customer account and one application per parcel of land.

Customers Can Participate By:

  • Owning the solar facility.
  • Leasing the solar facility.
  • Leasing the production of the facility through a Solar Energy Procurement Agreement (SEPA).
