Louisiana v Georgia: Solar Jobs Comparison Infographic
Thanks to our friends over at renewableenergysolar.net, we have another thrilling solar infographic. This time it’s a solar showdown between Louisiana and Georgia. Enjoy!
Solar Jobs Comparison — Louisiana vs. Georgia
A showdown of two solar [not so] heavyweights (sorry guys!), Louisiana and Georgia showcase their solar potential by stacking up their employed solar workers, number of companies, jobs per capita and homes powered by solar panels. With not-so-strong incentives, weak net metering and connection policies – this match-up shouldn’t last too long. Let’s see who takes the Southeast title home:

Notable Solar Installations in Georgia
- Blairsville Solar Farm was completed in 2011 by developer ESA Renewables. This photovoltaic project has the capacity to generate 1 MW of electricity– enough to power over 100 Georgia homes.
Another utility-scale project, Social Circle Solar Farm, is currently under development in Georgia and is scheduled to come online in 2013. Developed by Silicon Ranch, this 30 MW photovoltaic project will generate enough electricity to power 2,800 homes.
