Solar developer Southern Current is investing $16 million in five new projects in Marion County.
Southern Current, a residential, commercial and utility-scale solar developer based in Charleston, manages projects throughout the Southeast, from site selection through construction and operation.
The company has invested millions of dollars in solar projects throughout the state. Most recently, the company announced a $28 million investment in Ulmer Solar LLC in Orangeburg County.
“Southern Current is thrilled to make these clean energy investments in Marion County,” Paul Fleury, Southern Current's chief development officer, said in a news release. “These projects are the culmination of strong partnerships with our landowners, county council, the economic development team and all our consultants. Without their support and teamwork, none of this would be possible.”
