GA Solar Day Press Release

Georgia Solar Energy Association Celebrates

Virtual Solar Day at the Capitol

Nearly 75 Solar Energy Advocates Educate and Engage State Leaders & Energy Stakeholders


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Atlanta, GA (March 11, 2021) — Nearly 75 advocates from across the state attended the Georgia Solar Energy Association’s (GA Solar) Solar Energy Day at the Capitol virtually to highlight the importance of the solar energy industry to Georgia’s economy and quality of life. Solar leaders from around the state engaged decision makers and stakeholders such as Georgia House Energy, Utilities, & Telecommunications Chairman Don Parsons, 2015 Free Market Solar Act sponsor and Lieutenant Governor Policy Director Mike Dudgeon, and Representative Kim Schofield. 

GA Solar’s policy committee shared broad policy priorities and two specific pieces of legislation (HB 483 and HR 70) with attendees as well as tips and strategies to help constituents reach their legislators. HB 483 (Frye) would make it easier for homeowners interested in solar but facing opposition from their Homeowners Association to move forward with an installation. HR 70 (Schofield) is a resolution in favor of a 100% clean and renewable energy by 2050 goal in Georgia.

“We were thrilled to have so many advocates take part in GA Solar’s Virtual Solar Energy Day at the Capitol,” said Montana Busch, Co-Chairman of GA Solar. “Home grown solar energy has become part of the fabric of Georgia and we appreciate the engagement from our state leaders. The economic impact of the solar industry on Georgia is substantial and we want to highlight the solar industry’s contribution as we make energy policy.”

People who were unable to attend Solar Energy Day are encouraged to reach out to their legislator and inspire them to learn more about the positive impacts of solar energy.  For more information, visit
