Southern Current Plans Five Solar Farm Projects in Lee County, South Carolina

Southern Current, a leading developer in the residential, commercial and utility-scale solar markets, is expanding its solar farm portfolio with new facilities in Lee County, South Carolina. The company is investing in a total of five individual projects within Lee County, bringing a collective capital investment of $100 million.

Southern Current is an owner and developer of utility-scale solar energy facilities across the southeastern United States. With an in-house team of development professionals, the company manages projects from site selection and origination through construction and operation.

“Southern Current is thrilled to make these clean energy investments in Lee County. These projects are the culmination of strong partnerships with our landowners, county council, the economic development team and all our consultants and vendors. Without their support and teamwork, none of this would be possible,” said Southern Current COO Paul Fleury.

“This tremendous new $100 million investment in one of our rural counties is further proof of the business-friendly environment we’ve worked hard to build here in South Carolina. The future is bright for Southern Current and their solar projects throughout the state,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“Team South Carolina works hard every day to cultivate a pro-business environment for companies of all types in our state, and this new high-tech solar project in one of our rural counties is further evidence that our team-first approach is paying off. Congratulations to Southern Current on this new project,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

“TheLINK Economic Development Alliance is pleased to welcome Southern Current to Lee County and Bishopville. Clean energy projects are on the rise, and we are grateful our region is a part of this growth,” TheLINK Economic Development Alliance President & CEO Jay Schwedler added.
