A 200-MW solar power plant is being planned at a 2,000-acre site near Warner Robins, Georgia, a project that at present would be the largest standalone solar facility in the U.S. Southeast.
First Solar, a Tempe, Arizona-based global provider of photovoltaic (PV) systems, announced the project on February 21. The plant already has a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Georgia Power. Construction of the plant in Twiggs County is expected to begin in November 2018, with the plant coming online about a year later...

The Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed into law today (HB 57) that will allow homeowners and small businesses to finance the acquisition of solar panels to generate their electricity.
The law is considered an important step towards making solar power more widely available in Georgia, where it can cost a homeowner as much as $15,000 to $20,000 to install solar panels and related equipment.
The financing of solar panels for residences and small businesses has been considered a violation of the state’s electric territorial act, but HB 57 removes that legal barrier.
