GA Solar Honors PSC Chairman with Solar Advocate Award

Recognition Celebrates His Pivotal Role in Creating the State’s Thriving Solar Market


Atlanta, GA – Georgia Public Service Commission Chairman Lauren “Bubba” McDonald will be honored at 11 a.m. on Thursday, December 12, in ceremonies at an annual Holiday Luncheon at Mason Fine Art, 415 Plasters Ave., NE, Atlanta, GA.

The Georgia Solar Energy Association Board of Directors unanimously chose Chairman McDonald for this year’s honor. The award will be a tribute to his effective perennial advocacy for solar in Georgia over more than a decade. Chairman McDonald has worked with utilities, industry professionals and other advocates over the years to establish and steadily expand Georgia’s solar market.

As a result, many Georgia communities formerly overlooked in economic development initiatives have prospered with solar investments that provide them with needed revenue. Georgia’s growing solar market provides nearly 4,000 jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity to the state’s economic digest each year, thanks to initiatives proposed and supported by Chairman McDonald.
