Renewable Properties is investing $22.7 million in seven new solar facilities in Spartanburg County, according to the S.C. Department of Commerce.

"Renewable Properties is tremendously excited to make these clean energy investments in Spartanburg County,” said Aaron Halimi, president of Renewable Properties, in a news release. “Spartanburg County has chosen to take a leadership position in facilitating the adoption of renewable energy. These projects will deliver clean, reliable energy to the grid, serving the local utility and its customers. Climate change is a global problem that requires local solutions, and we can't thank the county enough for being part of the solution." 

Renewable Properties is a developer in the residential, commercial and utility-scale solar markets. The company works with communities, developers, landowners, utilities and financial institutions looking to invest in large solar energy systems, the release said.

"Renewable Properties' selection of Spartanburg County for launching these projects signifies the opportunities for building a clean energy economy that protects critical natural resources and benefits our businesses and our community,” said David Britt, Spartanburg County Economic Development Committee chairman and Economic Futures Group board member, in the release. “The decision supports the cooperative, pro-business climate of Spartanburg County for development of renewable solar power to meet market demand and create a more diversified and sustainable energy system."
