Adger Solar Plans Two Solar Farms In Clarendon, South Carolina
Active in the southeastern United States since early 2014, Adger Solar is a clean energy development company focused on creating lower-cost, utility-scale solar-electric generating facilities, with developments underway in six different South Carolina counties.
The first of these two 72MW solar farms is expected to be operational by the end of 2018; and, together, these projects will generate enough electricity to supply approximately 25,000 homes on an average annual basis, including customers of the two major local utility providers.
“Adger Solar has been developing these projects for nearly two years, and we’re very excited to have the strong support of Clarendon County as we move into the next phase of development. These low-profile solar PV (photovoltaic) projects will complement the county’s strong agricultural base and will become important contributors of jobs, tax revenue and clean power to the local community.” Adger Solar Principal Bill Moore said.
“Adger Solar’s investment in Clarendon is a real reason to celebrate because it shows that South Carolina is a place where companies in every industry can thrive. This $200 million investment shows that Adger Solar is serious about its commitment to our state and our people, and we look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come, Governor Nikki Haley said.
“Today’s announcement by Adger Solar is the largest solar energy project to date in central South Carolina, and we are honored they selected Clarendon County and the Central SC region. Clean, affordable and reliable energy will support our growing population for many, many years to come,” said Mike Brenan, Chariman of Central SC Alliance.
