Actually, I’m told there is one other, installed way back in the 1970s. However, this is the first one Colquitt Electric has had on its grid.
Since Georgia in May 2008 passed a 35% property tax rebate on solar installations, maybe we’ll see more solar around here. Especially since Congress in fall 2008 passed a 30% solar tax rebate. Add those up, and the effective price of solar comes down quite a bit.
This installation was done by Georgia Solar Power Company. Ben Browning of Georgia Solar Power brought in Craig Overmiller of Texas Solar Power Company to assist with this one, but from now on Georgia Solar Power should do fine on its own.
