SCE&G secures 42 MW of utility-scale solar capacity

South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. now produces 42 MW of utility-scale solar power with the recent addition of the 1.62-MW Otarre Solar Farm to the company's grid, according to a Dec. 5 company release.

"We are pleased to have reached this goal for utility-scale solar power ahead of the 2020 deadline," Keller Kissam, incoming president and COO of SCE&G, said in reference to the goal set forth by the South Carolina Distributed Resource Program Act of 2014.

In 2015, the SCANA Corp. subsidiary sought the approval of state regulators to develop utility-scale and distributed solar generation. The utility's proposal included a plan to acquire roughly 42 MW of utility-scale solar capacity by 2021.

The Otarre solar facility in Cayce, S.C. was interconnected to SCE&G's grid in October and was financed by project owner and operator TIG Sun Energy, a division of The InterTech Group.
