Breaking Ground on South Carolina Community Solar Project

Construction on South Carolina’s largest community solar program is officially underway! Today CEC and South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G), a regulated public utility serving thousands of customers in South Carolina, announced the groundbreaking of two of the three CEC-SCE&G community solar arrays.

 

In addition to being the state’s largest community solar program, the 16 megawatt project is one of the nation’s largest utility-sponsored community solar programs. Hundreds of SCE&G customers have signed up for the program, and both residential and nonresidential enrollments are now complete.

 

“We are proud to partner with SCE&G in making the benefits of solar energy available to so many more of their customers,” said Tom Sweeney, president of renewables at CEC. “Program enrollment launched about five months ago, and thanks to high customer demand for the financial and environmental benefits delivered by locally generated clean energy, available allocations have reached capacity.”
