Boeing Completes 2.6 MW Rooftop Solar Installation In South Carolina

South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) and Boeing have inaugurated what the companies say is the largest rooftop PV installation in the Southeast.

The 2.6 MW system is made up of more than 18,000 thin-film photovoltaic solar laminates that cover 10 acres on the roof of the 14-acre Boeing South Carolina 787 Final Assembly building in North Charleston, S.C.

SCE&G began installation of the panels May 16. Under the arrangement with Boeing, SCE&G will own and maintain the solar generation system and will supplement the solar-generated energy with power from its system resources, coupled with green attributes from its North Charleston biomass generator, to meet all of Boeing's energy requirements. Â
