Is Rooftop Solar Right for You?



Snapping Shoals EMC, in accordance with Georgia's Distributed Generation Act of 2001, accomodates residential solar installations up to 10 kw.

We recommend the following steps before installing solar panels on your home:

STEP 1: Before choosing solar panels for your home, consider the following:

  • Does my home have unobstructed access to sunlight for most of the day all year long?
  • Is my roof large enough to accommodate the system I need?
  • Does my community or homeowners association have any restrictions on solar panels?


STEP 2: Contact Snapping Shoals EMC. Call us at 770-786-3484 to find out about the interconnection agreement and other requirements needed to ensure a safe and reliable connection to the grid.

Interconnection Agreement

STEP 3: Talk with a contractor. If you haven’t already met with a qualified contractor, we suggest you do so before committing to a solar energy system. They will be able to provide you with details for your specific situation.

STEP 4: See if you qualify for any rebates or credits. SSEMC offers a rebate to residential members who install qualifying photovoltaic systems. The rebate is designed to help offset a portion of the initial installation cost of the system. Members who qualify for the program are eligible to receive a one-time rebate of $250 per kW up to a maximum of 10 kW ($2,500).
