Hampton WWTF Solar LLC will produce 2,106 megawatt hours of energy annually, or enough electricity to power 147 homes for a year, according to a news release.
Southern Current invested more than $2.4 million into the project, which will participate in the Solar Energy Non-Residential Bill Credit program with S.C. Electric & Gas Co. Inc.
“This is a great investment in our community and our future. The solar farm will save our wastewater treatment facility over $25,000 per year in operating costs,” said John Rhoden, Hampton mayor and chairman of Lowcountry Regional Water System.
The solar farm is located at 641 Holly St.
“This represents another step towards a clean energy future for our state and the companies that do business here,” said Danny Kassis, vice president of customer relations and renewables for SCE&G.
