ATLANTA — State officials say solar energy projects are receiving $4.5 million with Georgia’s Clean Energy Property Rebate Program.

Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority executive director Phil Foil says his agency received $82.5 million in stimulus funds for the state energy program and obligated $4.5 million for clean energy rebates.
