July 27 (Renewables Now) - Georgia Power said on Thursday it is seeking bids for more than 100 MW of solar distributed generation (DG) projects.

The competitive bidding process is part of the company's Renewable Energy Development Initiative (REDI), which was approved by the Georgia Public Service Commission in 2016.

According to the Request for Proposal (RfP), projects can be between 1 kW and 3 MW in size and the deadline for submitting them is August 15.

The Southern Company (NYSE:SO) subsidiary currently has 970 MW of solar capacity online and plans to add a further up to 1,600 MW of renewable capacity by the end of 2021 through REDI and other solar projects and programmes.
