Low-Cost Solar Power Could Triple Georgia’s Solar Capacity

Low-Cost Solar Power Could Triple Georgia’s Solar Capacity

Georgia Power is looking for approval of 525 MW from 10 new solar power plants. The average price of electricity for some of the proposed solar projects from developers was 6.5 cents per kilowatt-hour. (That’s really low!) The huge increase of over 500 MW would more than triple Georgia’s current solar power capacity. It would also do so at lower prices than have been bid at previously. Adding another 500 MW of solar power would create a number of new jobs for the construction phase of the projects, so there would be some impact economically.
