Georgia Power tells regulators adding solar generation will cost consumers more | jacksonville.com

ATLANTA | Executives with the state’s largest electric utility told regulators Tuesday they don’t need more generating capacity and that closing plants to add solar would boost consumers’ bills.

Georgia Power Co. executives also told the Public Service Commission that a proposal to make another company a monopoly provider of solar power was unworkable.

But Commissioner Stan Wise asked a series of questions that led the executives to explain how expensive it could be to add that much solar power, which would increase the company’s excess capacity even more.
