Cypress Creek Renewables Plans Bowman, South Carolina, Solar Plant

Cypress Creek Renewables, a company that specializes in the ownership and development of long-term solar energy projects, will build a new $115 million solar project, between Charleston and Columbia, in Bowman, South Carolina.

The new 75-megawatt facility is expected to be placed into service by 2019 in Orangeburg County.

“Cypress Creek is committed to helping grow the economies of local communities by providing renewable energy for homes and businesses. Clean energy is an important strategy towards building energy independence in the United States, and we appreciate all the work of our utility partners, Orangeburg County and the State of South Carolina for making Project Huntley a reality,” said Cypress Creek Renewables Executive Vice President of Operations Jaime Carlson.

“We welcome Cypress Creek Renewables to Bowman. It is indeed a great day in Orangeburg County and we welcome sustainable energy to our county. Thank you for your investment in our community. We are grateful,” said Orangeburg County Council Chairman Johnnie Wright Sr.

“Any time a company invests in South Carolina, it’s a sign of the state’s strong economy. But when a company from a new and innovative industry like solar decides to do business here, it shows that we have the tools in place to maintain and grow our economy in the long run. We’re grateful for Cypress Creek Renewables’ continued investment in South Carolina, and we’re excited for what the future holds for this partnership,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“Congratulations to Cypress Creek Renewables, Orangeburg County and all the participating partners on this latest announcement. The company’s continued investment within the Central S.C. region in recent years is providing a surge in alternative energy resources for local industry,” added Mike Brenan, Chairman of Central S.C. Alliance.
