- Community Solar in South Carolina
Duke Energy recently announced the launch of a community solar program that will help all demographics experience the wonders of renewable energy. Installation costs of solar panels can be extremely pricey, making it so that only a percentage of state residents can experience using solar to power their lives. With Duke Energy’s new community solar program, customers can subscribe to an already-existing solar project rather than purchasing systems to be installed on their homes.
Large retailers in South Carolina that have gone solar include Boeing, General Growth Properties, and Target.
Nearly 2,900 people provide for their families thanks to the solar industry in South Carolina.
There is enough solar energy generated in the state to power 42 schools.
