Frequently asked questions

The Georgia capitol receives approximately 4.5 hours per day of peak sun, or the amount of time the sun’s rays are at their most powerful in a given area. Atlanta, along with Savannah and Macon, are three of the top 100 sunniest cities in the U.S., making Atlanta one of many cities in Georgia in which solar panels are often well worth the investment! Your long-term savings will depend on a number of factors, including your home’s solar potential, roof angle, shade, and the cost of electricity in your area.

Can I get free solar panels in Georgia?

Unfortunately, solar panels in Georgia are not free. However, several financial incentive programs exist that help offset the cost of a solar panel installation in the Peach State. Across the state, most solar owners are eligible for federal incentives like the Residential Clean Energy Credit. There are also utility incentives offered by local electric cooperatives throughout the region.
