The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority's Energy Resources Division (ERD) promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy assistance programs to improve environmental quality and stimulate sustainable economic development in Georgia.

The State Energy Program provides financial assistance and technical support for energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides free energy conservation measures to income-eligible households in all of Georgia's 159 counties.

The State Utilities Program supports state facility managers and administrators in developing energy procurement and management strategies that control the state’s energy costs, reduce energy consumption, and improve the state's overall energy performance.

The Georgia Energy Challenge allows Georgia residents, business owners and facility managers to receive a customized list of energy-saving options calculated specifically for their home or facility. Georgians who accept the Challenge can pledge to reach the program's 15 percent goal by choosing no-cost, low-cost and longer-term energy-efficiency measures.

Georgia's Clean Energy Property Tax Credit provides tax incentives for investments in clean energy property and the value of wood residuals delivered to a qualified renewable biomass facility.

Energy Performance Contracting allows the state to finance building improvements designed to lower energy consumption. Through multiyear contracts, state agencies can partner with energy service companies to complete energy and water efficiency initiatives.

The Energy Assurance Program works closely with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, other state agencies, and private sector stakeholders to develop energy emergency planning resources and to lead exercises designed to ensure better emergency coordination.
