Georgia PSC orders more solar power – Atlanta Business Chronicle

The Georgia Public Service Commission ordered the state’s largest electric utility Thursday to boost its commitment to solar energy.

Commissioners voted 4-1 in a favor of a broader long-term electrical generation plan that requires Atlanta-based Georgia Power Co. to increase its solar power capacity by 525 megawatts by the end of 2016.

Of that amount, 425 megawatts would come from large “utility-scale” solar projects and 100 would come from projects small enough to be installed by individual residential or commercial property owners.

Georgia Power already is working to develop 260 megawatts of solar energy through two projects previously approved by the PSC.
