South Carolina’s Largest Solar Project Begins Operation

The project is located in Orangeburg County, whereto two firms recently also announced the financial close and start of construction for Huntley Solar, a 100 MWdc solar project. Together, the Huntley and Palmetto Plains projects will provide USD 11 million in local tax revenue for Orangeburg County over the expected 40-year operational life of the projects. Governor Henry McMaster said, “We are excited to have companies like Cypress Creek and Cubico invest in our state and remain proud of all the steps we have taken to welcome the solar industry to South Carolina. With the recent passing of the Energy Freedom Act, we expect to continue to see the rate payers benefit from low cost, environmentally friendly power.” Cypress Creek is the developer and engineering, procurement and construction provider for Palmetto Plains, as well as Huntley, and will perform the long-term Operations & Maintenance services for both projects. Sarah Slusser, CEO of Cypress Creek, said, “We are proud to energise South Carolina’s largest solar farm, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Orangeburg County community through our management of Palmetto Plains and the construction of Huntley.
