Georgia is a state with plentiful solar potential, however, state policies have not been too friendly to the industry in recent years. For example, the net metering policy calls for Georgia’s utilities to buy solar energy from solar-powered residents at a mere $0.04/kWh.** Reasonable optimism would predict that the state will finally join much of America in becoming a bit more solar friendly.
