Southern Current is about to launch a solar project in Aiken County within the next 18 months. $20 million will be invested into the solar farm in Jackson, South Carolina. Solar farms and renewable energy have become a key driver in South Carolina’s economy and we are thrilled to be a part of the growing industry. In Aiken County, the 19 MW solar farm is estimated to bring the county an extra $95,000 a year. The Aiken solar project will help reduce the carbon footprint and will also be low maintenance.
“We are pleased that Southern Current chose Aiken County for its newest solar farm. This is a significant investment, one that highlights the attractiveness of Aiken County for green energy projects. I’m confident that this project will be a win-win for both Southern Current and Aiken County taxpayers.” –Aiken County Council Chairman Gary Bunker
Southern Current’s Chief development officer, Paul Fleury said “The economic development team has a strong track record for supporting the growth of the clean energy revolution, and we’re excited to become a part of the community. These types of partnerships are continuing to show the country what makes our state so great.”
