New South Carolina Community Solar Program in the News

Did you know that CEC and our partner, South Carolina Electric and Gas Company (SCE&G), have joined together to expand community solar options in South Carolina? Last week we announced a new 16 MWac program that makes solar generation available to qualified SCE&G customers who cannot, or do not wish to, install rooftop solar panels.

Several local news publications near the Charleston, SC area have covered the news in the past week, including the Post and Courier, the Moultrie News and the Aiken Standard.

Starting June 8, 2017, SCE&G residential customers and eligible nonresidential customers may now purchase or subscribe to CEC’s RooflessSolar™ array. As customer panels begin producing electricity, participants will lower their monthly electric expenses through the credits received on their monthly utility bill. SCE&G expects to interconnect the first two of three CEC-developed solar facilities by the end of 2017.

South Carolina residents, schools, churches or municipalities may be eligible to participate in our new community solar program as well! To learn more and find out how to sign up, visit the SCE&G community solar page here.
