The South's Solar Leader

Imagine Atlanta as a leader in clean energy production. It’s not such a far off vision.  In fact, when it comes to solar, we have the potential right now. We're calling on cities across Georgia, starting with Atlanta, to tap into Georgia's enormous solar potential and lead the way toward a cleaner, greener future.

Save Georgia's Shores

Drilling for oil and gas and pressure from developers are some of the biggest threats facing Georgia's coast today. We're working to keep special places, like Jekyll Island, wild and to continue the moratorium on drilling along the Atlantic Coast.

Preserving Georgia's Trails

Georgia's hiking trails give us a gateway to undisturbed wilderness. Unfortunately, parts of these trails, and much of the wild areas they display, are privately owned and lack long-term protections. Environment Georgia is calling on our senators to protect this stunning scenery.

Go Solar, Georgia

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging Georgia's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

On June 2, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a Clean Power Plan that sets targets for states to reduce carbon from their power plants by investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency, cleaning up existing power plants, and switching to cleaner fuels. We’ve launched a campaign to reach more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.
