With the NEW Income-Qualified Community Solar program, corporate sponsors will subsidize a portion of the monthly subscription cost to allow income-qualified customers to enjoy similar benefits as customers who own their own solar panels.
Customers who qualify for the reduced rate of just $6 per month will receive one (1) block and energy credits as a line item on their electric bill.
Become a corporate sponsors today to make renewable energy available to income-qualified customers.
Review the Eligibility Criteria
Before completing an application, make sure you meet the basic program criteria:
Note: The Community Solar Program is for residential customers on the standard residential service rate only, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited availability, enrollment does not guarantee your participation, and acceptance into the program will be subject to verification by Georgia Power. You will be notified of program enrollment prior to your first Community Solar billing. If enrollment exceeds availability, you will automatically be added to a waiting list.
Yes, anyone who resides in your household, regardless of age, should be listed in your application.
The approval process should take approximately 5-7 business days. You will receive email notification of your application status.
Georgia Power's Income-Qualified Community Solar program costs $6 per 1 kilowatt (kW) block per month. Eligible customers will receive one block, no additional blocks will be granted.
With the corporate sponsorship, many income-qualified customers will receive greater savings than our standard community solar program participants
The monthly production of a 1 kW subscription block is estimated to be in the range of 115– 215 kilowatt-hours (kWh), with the average monthly production estimated to be 165 kWh. Note that solar production can vary due to the sun's angle, time of year, the number of cloudy days in the month, and other factors.
Your Georgia Power bill will include a line item showing your monthly subscription fee and your pro-rata share of the farms' solar generation (in kWh) during the month, which will offset your electric consumption. Please note that your bill will still include charges for your remaining monthly energy usage, according to your existing residential rate, including any applicable taxes, franchise fees or environmental costs.

You may enroll in an initial 12-month subscription, which automatically renews on a month-to-month basis unless canceled. You may cancel at any time but are required to provide 30 days' notice to Georgia Power. There are no termination fees. However, you must wait 12 months after cancellation before becoming eligible to rejoin the program.
