Georgia Power sells green energy

Georgia Power announced the launch of its Green Energy program. Green energy is available to residential customers in 100-kilowatt-hour blocks and requires a 12-month subscription period. Each block costs $4.50. Business and industrial customers can also participate in the program. The minimum number of blocks purchased by a business will be based on the amount of energy the customer has historically used.

Over 400 customers have already signed up for green energy.

Georgia Power’s first source of green energy is being generated in DeKalb County. Last year, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners voted in favor of developing a new landfill gas generation facility at the county’s Seminole Road facility and approved a 10-year contract to sell the energy to Georgia Power. The facility consists of two, 1.6 megawatt generators that have the ability to produce 24 million to 25 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually; this equals enough energy to power more than 2,000 homes.
