Georgia Power is embarking on plans to increase its renewable energy portfolio in the state by adding 100 megawatts of solar power to the grid.
The company is seeking proposals from solar generating facilities interested in selling between between 1 kilowatt to 3 megawatts of solar power to the company.
It’s all part of the utility company’s Renewable Energy Development Initiative (REDI).
Georgia Power is looking to sign contracts with prospective facilities to provide solar power to customers at a fixed price for a period of 15 to 35 years.
REDI expands and builds upon the innovation of previous programs that “have helped make Georgia a national renewable leader,” a spokesperson for the company said via email.
