Southern Current Plans Solar Farm in Orangeburg County, South Carolina

Southern Current, a leading developer in the residential, commercial and utility-scale solar markets, will invest $28 million to expand its solar farm portfolio with a new facility in Orangeburg County, South Carolina. The company is investing $28 million in this latest project, which will be known as Ulmer Solar, LLC.

This project follows Southern Current’s $10 million solar facility in Orangeburg County, announced in March 2017.

“Southern Current’s entire team commends Orangeburg County and its partners on this commitment to harness reliable, cost-effective solar energy for the future. This $28 million investment will produce a substantial amount of clean energy, which is good for the community and the entire state of South Carolina. We’re proud to be part of this important movement,” said Southern Current Chief Development Officer Paul Fleury.

“We’re grateful that Southern Current continues to invest in our rural communities and helps provide clean, abundant energy that is vital to the economic prosperity of our entire state,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

“The renewable energy market continues to be a major driver of South Carolina’s economy, and today’s announcement in Orangeburg County is proof of that. I congratulate Southern Current on this latest $28 million project and wish them years of continued success,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.

“Congratulations again to our friends in Orangeburg County and to Southern Current on this latest investment. The company’s growing presence signifies just how robust the opportunities are for the alternative energy industry here and speaks volumes to the collaborative, business-friendly spirit shared among those looking toward South Carolina and the Central S.C. region for a brighter future,” Central S.C. Alliance Chairman Mike Brenan said.
