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.
