ORION SMART POWER
Georgia boasts an abundance of sunshine and attractive financial incentives, making it an ideal choice for installing solar power. Ranking as the 9th-highest solar energy producing state in the U.S., Georgia has invested $3.7 billion into solar energy, which has generated enough power to supply 359,160 homes with its existing installs. Not only do these developments benefit the environment by reducing carbon emissions equivalent to taking 5.7 million cars off the road each year; but they also support the state's goal of becoming 100% emission-free by 2035 as per 2021 reports. Solar power is therefore an excellent way for Georgia residents to help their state reach its clean energy ambitions while benefitting from lower electricity bills at home.
4 Reasons Why It’s Worth Going Solar in Georgia
Add battery storage to your solar system so you can rely on clean energy and disconnect from the grid during outages.
COUNT ON SAVINGS
Reduce your carbon footprint while harnessing the power of the sun. Solar panels take advantage of this by providing consistent, reliable power.
LOWER YOUR FOOTPRINT
Solar power has many advantages over fossil fuels as a renewable energy source. It is a more viable option for your home, community, and the environment.
INCREASE HOME VALUE
Due to the increasing popularity of solar-powered homes, they stand out, resulting in immense profits as they sell faster and at a higher value in the national real estate market.
Available Solar Incentives Georgia
Incentives help lower the cost of your solar energy system. Those available in Georgia include:
Residential Clean Energy Tax Credit: The Residential Clean Energy Credit allows eligible solar owners to deduct up to 30% of their system’s cost from their total federal tax liability for the year of purchase.
Net Metering and Billing Programs: All utility providers, including Georgia Power, are required by law to provide a minimum credit value for any excess solar energy you produce and add to the electric grid. The exact value of the credits will depend on your utility provider.
Local Utility Rebates: Some electric cooperatives and municipal utilities throughout the state of Georgia, such as Central Georgia EMC and Jackson EMC, may offer solar rebate programs to further offset the cost of your solar panels.
