SolAmerica Energy, which develops, finances and constructs commercial and utility-scale solar PV projects, says it will activate a new 924 kW single-axis tracker solar array on the property of Collum’s Lumber Products in Allendale, S.C., on March 21.
As reported, the 10-acre site on Collum’s Lumber Products’ property will generate energy income for the company through a bill credit program with South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G). The array was designed, engineered and installed by SolAmerica.
“This solar project makes a lot of sense for our business, from both an economic and environmental standpoint,” says Mickey Scott, president of Collum’s Lumber Products. “We have evaluated several renewable energy projects in the past and are very pleased that this one worked out.”
Executives from Collum’s and SolAmerica, along with local leaders from Allendale and trade-business-community media, will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:00 a.m. EDT that day to celebrate the activation of this new solar installation.
“This project is a great example of the value that solar energy can drive for commercial users and for landowners,” says George Mori, executive vice president of SolAmerica. “We are thrilled to partner with Collum’s Lumber and SCE&G on this project as one of the first large commercial solar projects in South Carolina.”
