Georgia Power Co. energized a 2-MW solar facility to serve customers participating in its new community solar program in Comer, Ga., according to a Dec. 6 release.
The facility, with 8,200 solar panels installed, will supply power for the new program at a monthly charge of $24.99 per 1-kW block in exchange for a monthly credit based on the actual solar energy generation at the site. Consumers can subscribe to a maximum of 10 1-kW blocks, with a total of 3,000 blocks available.
Pre-enrollment for residential customers is available since October, although the program is scheduled to launch on Jan. 1, 2018.
The Southern Co. subsidiary plans to build another 1-MW solar project to supply energy to the program in another part of the state.
