Solar Bill HB 57 & Solar Power Update

Solar Bill HB 57 has unanimously passed both the Georgia House and Senate. Georgia homeowners and business owners will now have the choice to install solar systems on their property without upfront costs. Southface worked with the utility, solar industry and other clean energy advocates to get this historic legislation passed. The use of free-market tools, not previously available in Georgia, greatly expands the solar options for Georgia consumers. It is a new day for rooftop solar in Georgia.

Solar Power Southeast
Southface is a proud partner of Solar Power Southeast, a one-and-a half day regionally-focused event that will address forward-looking and in-depth discussions on policy, regulatory and technical topics facing the industry in the Southeastern United States, with a particular focus on Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas. The event will be held on May 7-8 in Atlanta.

Southface Update: SART tomorrow

Atlanta is the number two metropolitan market for electric vehicles (EVs) in the nation, largely due to state subsidies above the national average, electric power prices below the national average and access to carpool lanes on congested highways. Georgia Power’s $12 million “Get Current” program, which incentivizes property owners to construct new EV charging stations, is contributing to further market expansion. 

As the market for EVs continues to expand, so does the need for standard practices and protocols among EV drivers. Join us to discuss the market for EVs in Georgia as well as how we can foster EV driver behavior that will help the market flourish.
