Firstly, Decatur advocates for energy efficiency and more access to renewable energy.

Secondly, the city of Decatur, Savannah, Athens-Clarke County, and DeKalb County formed a coalition to help improve Georgia Power’s existing and proposed energy-efficiency programs.

Thirdly, Georgia Power’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) has to be approved by the state Public Service Commission. The PSC is set to decide on Georgia Power’s 2022 Integrated Resource Plan, with any possible changes, on July 21.

Clean energy plans

In addition, the city of Decatur intervened in the IRP proceedings as part of the Georgia Coalition of Local Governments to advocate for priorities and achieve the goals in the clean energy plans that have been adopted or are anticipated to be adopted by local and federal governments.

In January, Georgia Power filed its 2022 Integrate Resource Plan to the Public Service Commission. The IRP outlines Georgia Power’s energy efficiency and production strategies to meet its forecasted electricity demand.

The IRP lays out Georgia Power’s plan to transition its fleet to more economical and cleaner resources, double its renewable and solar capacity, focus on energy storage solutions, and offer customer efficiency programs.
