  • Share

SolarGen of South Carolina is investing $150 million to establish a solar energy operation in Clarendon County.

The clean energy development company, a wholly owned subsidiary of CMDAJ Holdings LLC, is constructing a 125-megawatt solar farm that will span approximately 500 acres in Alcolu.

“Clarendon County and South Carolina Department of Commerce’s professional, prompt and business ‘can-do’ attitude – combined with their understanding of the important role of sustainable, clean energy to its growing economic base – made selecting this Clarendon County site for our next project a perfunctory, easy decision,” Carmine Iadarola, president of SolarGen of South Carolina, said in a news release. “We are very pleased to be part of this team to help grow the South Carolina economic base.”

Operations are expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2024.

“We are pleased to welcome SolarGen of South Carolina to our growing list of companies in Clarendon County,” Clarendon County Council Chair Dwight Stewart said. “We support this investment in green energy, as it adds to our growing renewable energy cluster.”
