The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) updates the Georgia Energy Report every two years. The last report was released in 2014.
GEFA’s Energy Resources Division, which develops the Georgia Energy Report, promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy assistance programs that not only meet Georgia’s energy demand, but improve the environment and strengthen quality of life.
