Barnwell PV 1, a solar solutions company, announced plans Thursday to invest $75 million in a Barnwell County facility.
Founded in 2010, Barnwell PV 1 LLC is a developer of renewable energy generation facilities, according to a news release. It’s part of a company that develops, constructs, owns and operates renewable energy projects at utility scale in six countries.
“We look forward to developing the 60 MW solar farm in Barnwell County for renewable energy production, and we appreciate the support of Barnwell County, SouthernCarolina Alliance and the S.C. Department of Commerce in making this project a reality, Barnwell PV1 Director John Gorman said in the news release. “Our $75 million investment in this community will not only produce clean electricity to power homes, it is also part of the global movement toward more efficient sources of power.”
Located on Patterson Mill Road in Snelling, the company’s new facility is expected to be operational by June 2023.
“Barnwell County has a long history of embracing alternative energy and innovation, and we welcome Barnwell PV 1 LLC to our community,” Barnwell County Council Chairman Harold Buckmon said in the release. “We appreciate their investment and will work with the company to make their operation successful.”
