Solar Developments

Adger Solar is actively developing approximately 750(ac) MW of utility-scale solar projects in six different counties in South Carolina, with an early record of success in Jasper County, where Adger’s first two projects -- and SC’s first utility scale solar facility -- are now under construction:

Solvay Solar Energy – Jasper County

  • 71.4 MW(ac) photovoltaic generating facility in Jasper County, SC, scheduled to be operational Q4 2017
  • Will produce enough clean electricity to supply 1.5x the number of households (12,500) in Jasper County, on an annual average.
  • The long-term, fixed-price Power Purchase Agreement with SCE&G for the 1st phase of the Jasper Solar facility has been approved by the SC Public Service Commission (the first such approval for a large-scale solar electric generating project in the State).
  • Now under construction, on an approximately 900 acre site that was formerly used for timberland and hunting.
  • A first-of-its kind Gopher Tortoise protection and relocation plan adopted under the guidance of SC DNR.
  • The Solvay Solar Energy – Jasper County is phase 1 of Adger’s Jasper County development effort, and is now owned by Dominion Generation (Richmond, VA). Phase 2 will be a similar size project on adjacent land that is fully permitted and ready to go, with a planned interconnection to the Santee Cooper transmission system.
  • An Adger Solar affiliate will be the long-term owner of the Phase 1 site, leasing it to Dominion.
  • A 30-year FILOT agreement with Jasper County will provide approximately $10 million of new revenue to local authorities from the Solvay Solar Energy – Jasper Project.
Ridgeland Solar (Town of Ridgeland, Jasper County)
  • 10 MW(ac) photovoltaic generating facility in Ridgeland, SC, scheduled to be operational Q3 2017
  • The Ridgeland project was selected by SCE&G as part of the utility’s Distributed Energy Resource Program; it has executed a Power Purchase Agreement with SCE&G.
  • The long-term, fixed-price Power Purchase Agreement with SCE&G for the Ridgeland Solar facility has been approved by the SC Public Service Commission.
  • The Ridgeland Solar facility is now owned by Dominion Generation (Richmond, VA).
  • An Adger Solar affiliate will be the long-term owner of the Ridgeland Solar site, leasing it to Dominion.
  • A 30-year FILOT agreement with Jasper County and the Town of Ridgeland will provide approximately $1 million dollars of new revenue for local authorities.
