Report: SC solar developer to build 6 projects in Darlington County

A South Carolina solar developer is planning to invest up to $149 million to build six solar projects in Darlington County, according to a June 3 report by the Hartsville (S.C.) Messenger.

The Darlington County Council reportedly gave preliminary approval to an ordinance authorizing a 30-year agreement for a fee in lieu of taxes between the company and the county. The agreement established fees of $421,392 yearly to be paid to the county for the first 10 years of the agreement and $368,494 yearly for the succeeding years.

The council did not publicly identify the company planning to build the six solar farms, and the proposed ordinance and related documents only refer to the "companies" as "Project Dates 2."

But the Hartsville Messenger noted that in July 2018, Southern Current LLC announced plans to invest $340 million to build 17 utility-scale projects in a rural part of South Carolina.
