A bill to make it easier for customers to install solar was passed unanimously by the Georgia Senate last week.
Georgia House Bill 57, called the Solar Power Free Market Financing Act of 2015, is meant to make it easier for customers to understand their options when it comes to financing small solar installation. It was introduced by Sen. Mike Dudgeon.
The bill allows residential solar customers applying for less than 100 kilowatts (kW), “the electric service provider may require the retail electric customer or solar financing agent to provide, at the retail electric customer’s or solar financing agent’s expense, all equipment necessary to meet applicable safety, power quality, and interconnection requirements established by the National Electrical Code, National Electrical Safety Code, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and Underwriters Laboratories.”
