Interested homeowners can see if solar energy is right for them using resources such as Georgia Power's and Jackson EMC's online tools. Further, Georgia Energy Data provides an interactive map for you to explore solar installations, capacity, installers, and manufacturers in your area.

Solar projects in Georgia are covered by a variety of state and local laws.

In Georgia, the Solar Energy Free-Market Financing Act defines how entities can use solar energy procurement agreements to "lease solar" or otherwise purchase solar energy from a system they do not own.

In Georgia, the Solar Easements Act creates a process to develop voluntary solar easements to ensure sunlight can continue to reach a solar energy system throughout its operating life.

A full view of national solar access laws is available from the Solar America Board for Codes and Standards.
