This week our friends at South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) announced they’ve met the utility-scale solar goal set forth by the South Carolina Distributed Resource Program Act, or Act 236, by producing 42 megawatts of utility-scale solar power by 2020.
“We are pleased to have reached this goal for utility-scale solar power ahead of the 2020 deadline,” said Keller Kissam, incoming president and COO of SCE&G.
There are nearly 6,000 solar customers who are interconnected to SCE&G’s electric system by owning and operating renewable energy generation facilities, such as solar energy systems. SCE&G and CEC recently announced breaking ground on their newest South Carolina community solar arrays. The 16 MW community solar program was first unveiled in September 2016, began accepting allocation reservations in June 2017; and achieved sold out capacity within three months.
