Description: The Georgia Solar Energy Association is a non-profit organization working to promote renewable energy in the state of Georgia through, education, research and advocacy. We promote all renewable energy production including (but not limited to):
- Wind Energy
- Solar Thermal
- Photovoltaic Energy
- Bio-Diesel and Bio-Fuels
- Micro-Hydro Electric
Sustainability Initiatives: More recently, GSEA has assisted Southface with the Solar America Initiative (formerly know as the Million Solar Roofs Initiative) in an effort to increase the number of solar installations in the State of Georgia to 500 by 2010. According to installer reports, this goal has been successfully surpassed. To learn more about our current activities and how to get involved, click here
GSEA assists Southface in maintaining their Solar Road Map, a website devoted to free information and educational resources on solar technologies.
The BeltLine, a 22-mile loop of historic railroad that encircles downtown and midtown, is a unique opportunity to increase greenspace, improve transit, connect neighborhoods and foster livable communities.
GSEA is working with the Friends of the BeltLine in an effort to obtain solar lighting for the 5.4 miles of path being created alongside the light rail transit system. We are also exploring ways in which the city of Atlanta can power as much light rail as possible from renewable energy resources. We also plan to be involved with greening the homes and retail spaces to be constructed as part of the BeltLine development program. To learn more about the beltline initiative, click here
