    NOT ENOUGH SUN FOR A GEORGIA PEACH

    …Proposed Georgia Power Solar Energy Initiative…is one step of many needed to build a sustainable solar market in Georgia

    September 26, 2012 (Solar Energy Industries Association)

    “…[A Georgia Power Company initiative will] create one of the largest voluntarily-developed solar portfolios by an investor-owned utility in the U.S. The Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative (GPASI) would add 210 megawatts (MW) of additional solar capacity to Georgia Power’s portfolio through 2015…

    “…The completed 210MW of solar electric capacity would be enough to power nearly 20,000 average Georgia households…To meet the 210 MW target, Georgia Power would purchase 60 MW annually for three years with projects ranging in size from one to 20 megawatts, which applies to very large commercial or utility-scale projects. The other 10 MW would be met through a distributed-scale program for residential and commercial projects.”

    “The solar industry more than doubled the amount of solar installed in the U.S. in the second quarter of this year compared to 2011, and growth is expected to continue in the second half of 2012…

    “The top 10 states for total solar electric capacity are (in descending order): California, New Jersey, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Pennsylvania, New York and North Carolina. Georgia is not ranked in the top 25 states in terms of installed capacity…”
