“Solar in the Southeast” illuminates the critical role of utilities in the growing southeastern solar market. Southeastern states, particularly Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, grant monopoly utilities–rather than a competitive marketplace–the responsibility and control over power supplies. Consequently, the location of a home or business is the primary determinant not only of which utility will supply the electricity, but also the amount of solar within that portfolio.
The purpose of this report is to review emissions and generation trends of the electric power sector in the Southeast. The purpose of this report is to document current progress and trends at both utility and state levels, as well as identify policies and practices to drive continued solar growth in the Southeast.
