Our Simple Solar program allows all customers the ability to support the growth of renewable energy while reducing your electric-based carbon footprint. For an additional 1.25¢ per kWh, you can match either 50% or 100% of your monthly energy usage with Renewable Energy Credits. Simple Solar is available to all customers, whether you have renewable energy goals or cannot install a rooftop solar.
Use our Simple Solar Calculator along with your personal energy usage data to determine a participation level and environmental impact that works for you.
Georgia Power also offers Large Volume or Special Event discounted purchase options as well.
Energy is produced.
Solar panels convert rays from the sun into electric energy. This energy is added to the grid to power homes and businesses.
RECs are created.
The solar energy produced is represented by renewable energy credits (RECs). A REC is created for each megawatt-hour of renewable energy added to the power grid. Through the Simple Solar Program, all customers can easily support solar by purchasing RECs.
Get more from the sun.
By purchasing RECs, customers can claim the usage of solar energy by pairing their energy purchase with a solar renewable energy credit. The purchase of RECs encourage current and future demand for renewable energy and helps build up solar production for future generations.
