SC Biz Recognizes Solar Company’s Expanding Footprint
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Southern Current has been named the fastest growing company in South Carolina for 2018 by SC Biz News and its Roaring Twenties awards. Headquartered here, Southern Current operates in 10 states and is a market leader with nearly $450 million in investments for 500 MW to date. In the past year, Southern Current’s team has doubled in size to nearly 100 members.
Twenty large companies and 20 small companies gathered last night at an event in Columbia to recognize the finalists at the Roaring Twenties presentation. This honor recognizes the state’s fastest-growing companies based on both dollar and percentage increases in revenue from 2016-2017.
“We are honored to be named the fastest growing company in South Carolina, a state with such a robust collection of organizations,” said Jon Downey, President and CEO. “As our team and our footprint grow across the country, we remain fully committed to our home state and helping make it an even better place to live and work.”
In order to qualify for the Roaring Twenties designation, companies must have a physical presence in South Carolina and be a for-profit entity or a unique, non governmental nonprofit organization.
Company size was determined by gross revenue and percentage growth, year over year. Southern Current was selected as the fastest growing among all 20 finalists.
