    Solar Incentives

    The Basics

    The state of Georgia provides tax credit incentives for solar installations in the state, but these are not available again without legislative action. Georgia Power, the major utility in the State, and many of the local cooperatives and municipal utilities provide support to solar projects.

    The major incentive is:

    • Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative - Customers can receive a long term agreement from the utility to purchase energy at approximately $0.13/kwh.

    • We provide the URE Advanced Solar Offer which allows you to acquire and pay for the system, and be cash flow positive from day one!

    The system sizes for Georgia Power are limited from 100 kW to 1 MW per meter. Payments are estimated at .13 cents/kwh plus you get to keep your solar Renewable Energy Credits!

    TVA in northwest Georgia offers a production based incentive of about $0.12/kWh in addition to the energy which you keep, up to 50kW per project. Many of the state's EMC offer incentives based on installed DC kW. Every utility in Georgia offers net metering.

    Federal Government Incentives:

    • Solar projects are eligible for a 30% investment tax credit. This ITC is available through 2015

    • Solar projects are eligible for accelerated MACRS depreciation. In 2012 this expense equals 60% of the depreciation basis
