ATLANTA — A growing number of Georgians support solar energy, but regulators considering the state’s largest utility’s long-range plans are considering whether it’s needed.
Ordinary people viewing it from a common-sense standpoint see benefits in solar power.
For many, the attraction is environmental. There’s no wasted fuel or emissions, and the only impact is in the manufacturing and shipping of the photovoltaic panels.
For others, it’s economic. Sun-shine, after all, is free. And the precipitous drop in costs for the panels makes the total package more affordable.
