Utility Collaborates With SD&D To Bring More Solar To Georgia

Renew Grid, Monday July 02, 2012 - 12:03:14

Georgia Power and Solar Design & Development (SD&D) are collaborating to develop and install a series of solar projects totaling 19 MW around the state.

The projects are part of Georgia Power's 50 MW large-scale solar initiative, which was approved last year by the Georgia Public Service Commission. Georgia Power has contracted to purchase the output for the next 20 years. Future projects will be built in Meriwether County and Mitchell County.

Georgia Power has also awarded SD&D a 1 MW contract under the company's solar request for proposals (RFP) issued in May 2011. Solar resources from this RFP will supply the utility's subscriber-based green energy program, bringing the total capacity in the program to 5.4 MW.
