Georgia is only recently breaking into the solar market due to new mandates easing some previous restrictions that made getting solar difficult and inflexible. With as much sunshine per year as Florida, Georgia's environment is superb for solar.
As Georgia is still a budding market for Solar, many utilities have limits on the amount of customers they can support for solar net metering. In other words, you'll receive 1:1 credit for the power you produce on your utility bill. Thus if you're interested in Solar, don't delay. Otherwise, if available net metering spots run out, you'll be compensated at a lower rate which is equal to cost it takes for your utility company to generate a kilowatt of power. Still, even though it isn't ideal, either way installing a solar system still results in huge savings.
Unfortunately, there are no local rebates or incentives for solar. But if you operate a business out of your home, you may be able to deduct your solar panels from your tax liability with the Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS). Talk to a tax professional to see if this is option is available to you.
Regardless of State, ownership of a solar system makes you eligible for the Federal Incentive Tax Credit (ITC) for up to 26% your Total System Cost for systems installed in 2022.
