As part of its Renewable Energy Development Initiative (REDI), Georgia Power is now taking bids for new solar distributed generation projects through a RFP for more than 100MW of PV capacity.
Georgia Power is seeking PV projects ranging from 1kW installations up to 3MW PV farms. Parties interested in the RFP must submit projects to Georgia Power by noon on 15 August.
Wilson Mallard, director of renewable development for Georgia Power, said: "We are committed to developing cost-effective renewable resources through a competitive bidding process that continues to evolve and improve based on our experience.
