Atlanta, GA - Mark Bell, chairman of the Georgia Solar Energy Association, has issued the following statement on the agreement between Georgia Power and the Georgia Public Service Commission not to include a tariff on Georgia’s solar installations:

“This agreement, which follows the prudent recommendation of the PSC staff, is a wise evaluation of the effect this punitive tariff would have had on solar development. As the staff analysis made clear, no justification existed for the proposed tariff. And it would have set off a severe chilling effect on the increased investment solar projects have recently enjoyed under the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative. On behalf of Georgia’s solar professionals, GSEA is grateful this economic growth can continue unhindered.”
