Electricity Production Data Set

Southface compiles this database of electricity production from the following sources:

Solar Data Set

Southface compiles this database of solar installations and firms from public sources, including:

  • GEFA – most installations since 2008 have been recorded at GEFA because the installations involved either a state tax credit or funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Energy for America Program
  • Utility sources, solar installers and local nonprofits
  • Industry publications, press releases, news articles and installer websites

The solar database contains the majority of solar installations in Georgia and fairly represents the rapid progress that the Georgia solar industry has made in recent years. The database only includes active installations that are currently providing power or heat. New installations are added regularly.

Southface works with GEFA, installers and building owners to ensure data integrity. To provide information regarding an installation, click the “Report an error” link that appears in each installation’s information box.
