Cypress Creek Renewables plans to invest $8 million in a solar energy project in Allendale County, South Carolina.
The company is working in tandem with Southern Current, a company established through the recent merger of Sustainable Energy Solutions and Solbridge Energy.
“Our company is committed to helping grow the economies of local communities by providing renewable energy for homes and businesses," Cypress Creek Renewables CEO Matthew McGovern said. "Clean energy is an important strategy toward building energy independence in the United States and we appreciate all the work of our utility partners, local leaders, and the State of South Carolina for making this project a reality.”
Southern Current will be in charge of local activities in connection with project, including site identification and acquisition, securing of permits and coodination with other utility companies.
All economic development approvals are in place. The Allendale County solar facility, which will be located on Highway 301 in Allendale, is expected to be up and running before the end of 2016. Once at full capacity, the facility will produce eight megawatts of energy — enough to power about 1,600 homes.
“SouthernCarolina Alliance appreciates the investment that the Cypress Creek Renewables project will bring to Allendale County," SouthernCarolina Alliance chairman Buddy Phillips said. "We welcome the company as a great addition to our renewable energy sector.”
