Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable
June 1: Solar Energy In Atlanta
Solar power is one of the cleanest renewable energy sources available, and according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Georgia ranks as the country’s third fastest-growing solar power generator. With the advent of solar storage technology -- coupled with falling costs and tax credits -- homeowners throughout the state have quickly adopted solar storage.
