South Carolina: Santee Cooper launching community solar project | Charelston Regional Business Journal
Santee Cooper customers will be able to purchase shares of Colleton Solar Farm’s output through a new program kicking off Friday.
The state-owned utility’s board of directors recently approved the Solar Share community solar project and new rebates, according to a news release.
Customers in the program will receive a monthly credit on their electric bill based on their share of the solar energy produced at the farm. The current purchase price is $1.88 per watt, which is offset by a $1-per-watt rebate, for a net cost to customers of $880 for a 1-kilowatt subscription, the news release said.
