Georgia Commission Recommits to Solar

On July 16, 2019, the Georgia Public Service Commissioners approved recommendations by Vote Solar and Southface Institute and committed Georgia Power to invest in more than two gigawatts of clean energy over the next three years. The two nonprofits presented expert testimony throughout the months-long case, imploring the Commission to increase Georgia's commitments to renewable energy and energy savings programs, which it approved. The Commission also approved the recommendation to ask regulators to initiate a new proceeding this fall to secure fair compensation for independent power producers.
