Featuring Georgia Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols


When Tim Echols was first elected to the Georgia Public Service Commission in 2010, Georgia Power’s Green Energy Program included about 4 megawatts of solar power. Today, Georgia is a nationwide leader in solar energy development, and through Tim's leadership the state now has net metering in place. With solar tariffs now in play, battery storage making advancements, EVs on the rise, and a nationally recognized local utility, what does this mean for renewable energy and alternative fuels in Georgia and beyond? Tim will emcee a virtual roundtable discussion that sheds light on Georgia’s energy future.
