IT’S HEARTENING that Georgia Power wants to more than triple its solar capacity with panels at solar farms and on the roofs of ratepayers’ homes and businesses.
On Thursday, the utility filed a proposal with the Georgia Public Service Commission to acquire 210 megawatts of additional solar capacity over a three-year period.
The utility currently uses 61 megawatts of solar, enough to power about 7,600 homes. Let’s hope the PSC puts this project in its regulatory fast-lane. It looks to be a smart move.
