Georgia Public Service Commission Docket No. 36989. Direct Testimony of Karl R. Rabago on behalf of the Georgia Solar Energy Industries Association before the Public Service Commission ("the Commission") of the State of Georgia. Georgia Power Company (“the Company”) seeks to impose new rates and charges on customers who install and use solar energy generation systems at their homes, businesses and farms. The testimony urges the Commission to deny these new charges because the Company has failed to substantiate its need to implement tariff charges that unreasonably discriminate against this particular customer class. The rates and charges contained in the Company's proposed Supplemental Power Service-1 tariff and correlated time of use (“TOU”) tariffs are not just or reasonable. Therefore, their implementation is not in the public interest. Moreover, the testimony recommends the Company should examine the Value of Solar and the Company be directed to develop Value of Solar avoided cost calculations consistent with the testimony's recommendations in a seperate proceeding.
