This study presents an analysis of the current and potential commercial solar industry in the state of Georgia. Measuring the photovoltaic generating potential across five locations in Georgia provides insights into the feasibility for sustainable energy production. Current state and federal renewable energy programs are considered in the analysis to assess their impact on cost and risk reductions for investments in solar installations. With proper energy purchasing programs combined with available tax credits, the analysis indicates that commercial solar electricity generation can provide positive financial returns on investment.
