Adger Solar plans to invest $200 million for two solar projects in Clarendon County, creating at least five new jobs.
Adger Solar is a clean energy development company that creates utility-scale, solar-electric generating facilities. It has projects underway in six different South Carolina counties.
“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,” Adger Solar principal Bill Moore said. 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."
The first of the two new 72 megawatt solar farms should be operational by the end of 2018. Both projects, once complete, will generate enough electricity to supply 25,000 homes annually.
“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," Gov. Nikki Haley said. "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."
