Georgia Power, the state's largest utility, has established a green power program, that allows the company to purchase limited solar generation at a premium price based on other customers voluntarily paying a premium on their electric bill to support renewable generation. System owners are paid for generation at a higher rate than the rate at which they would be compensated under the standard Renewable and Non-Renewable program (RNR-8). Georgia Power purchases 100% of the electricity from photovoltaic (PV) systems at a rate of $0.17 per kilowatt-hour (kWh), with a current aggregate program capacity limit of 4.4 megawatts (MW). This program is currently full and there is not any available capacity at this time. The expansion of this program depends on the increase of customers purchasing green energy from Georgia Power. Georgia Power maintains a waiting list for this program.

All equipment must comply with the standards set down by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the National Electrical Safety Code.
