alternative-energy-building-clouds-356036

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.

Southface’s June Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable convenes leaders driving the state’s movement to solar. Hear from some of the companies behind our state’s solar movement. Panelists will share insight on getting started with solar systems, as well as how solar storage technologies can optimize energy use.
