Georgia Power seeking 25 MW of solar project proposals

Georgia Power is partnering with solar developers through its Customer-Connected Solar Program, which plans to bring 25 MW of distributed generation customer-sited solar to the state.
“We are excited to offer programs that help renewable energy grow and thrive in Georgia,” said Wilson Mallard, director of Renewable Development for Georgia Power. “This program will provide a new renewable energy option for participating customers, while also benefitting all of our customers by continuing to expand our state’s diverse energy generation resources.”
Georgia Power will purchase 100% of the solar energy generated in the CCSP program by directly paying the customer. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) will be retired by Georgia Power on behalf of participating customers, allowing the customer to claim the renewable benefits of the local solar energy.
The CCSP program will accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis until the 25-MWac portfolio is filled, or until January 2022. Customers can choose agreement terms between 10 and 30 years and projects can be sized from 1 kW up to 3 MWac. The average price ranges from 4.3-6.7 cents/kWh.
Community Solar and Simple Solar Programs
The company also encourages residential customers who are not eligible to participate in CCSP to consider additional renewable programs such as Georgia Power Community Solar and Simple Solar. Community Solar gives residential customers who subscribe the opportunity to earn an energy credit on their bill based on actual solar energy production at Georgia Power’s Community Solar facilities.
The Simple Solar program is a solar REC purchase program available to all customers that allow participants to claim solar benefits for either 50% or 100% of their energy usage.
Renewable Energy Growth
Georgia Power currently has more than 1,625 MW of solar capacity currently online. Through continued development of CCSP, as well as other solar projects and programs, Georgia Power expects to add up to 1,400 MW of additional renewable capacity by the end of 2021.
