South Carolina utility SCE&G has already met the state-mandated utility-scale solar goal set by the South Carolina Distributed Resource Program Act, with the company producing 42MW of utility-scale PV power years ahead of its 2020 deadline.
The achievement was celebrated on 5 December in conjunction with the commissioning of the 1.62MW Otarre Solar Park in Cayce. The installation was developed by TIG Sun Energy and built by Hannah Solar Government Services.

Keller Kissam, incoming president and COO of SCE&G, said: “We are pleased to have reached this goal for utility-scale solar power ahead of the 2020 deadline. When we started working to achieve the goals, we also set out to demonstrate that solar isn’t just a program, but it’s an integral part of our generation portfolio. It’s a part of our future and the future of South Carolina. We’re happy to celebrate this important milestone today with TIG and Hannah Solar. They’ve been true partners in helping establish greater access to clean energy for our customers.”
