Coalition Letter to Appropriations Committee

New Energy Economics Board member Ron Binz testimony and cross examination in the Georgia Public Service Commission, Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) hearing, May 2022.

Georgia has been very successful in the development of solar generation, currently fifth in the country in total solar installed. Ron’s testimony addressed why the Georgia Power bid process resulted in recommendation for only new gas production. He summarized the following conclusions and recommendations:

  1. Some of the new gas will not be needed in a “least cost” scenario.
  2. Georgia Power needs to recharacterize solar plus storage in the planning process.
  3. Most importantly, move to All Source Solicitation for new generation capacity and reliability.
  4. The Georgia Public Service Commission needs to encourage or require Georgia Power to move into more regional cooperation and use of connected assets and reserve capacity in the region.
