It’s been many sessions, but the Georgia state legislature has finally passed some groundbreaking solar legislation. The time is now ripe to get on board with solar in the state. Businesses can qualify for up to $500,000 in tax credits while homeowners can claim up to $10,500 for PV installations. Your equipment needs to be in service by 2012 to qualify. For more details, check out the Georgia solar energy page. This move by state officials has bumped Georgia’s legislator rating up from one sun to four!

    About time. You must have loads of sun in the deep south.
    Although the US in general has fallen behind the Germans and Japanese in terms of production of solar cells, it is still a major player, make no mistake. Especially with these state sponsered initiatives.
    Whilst most other nations solar energy policies are created at national level, the USA’s are normally created at state level.
