$7.5 Million Solar Farm To Be Built In Dillon County

DILLON, S.C. — Pine Gate Renewables, a renewable energy company based in Charlotte, is launching a new solar farm in Dillon County projected to bring in $7.5 million of new capital investment.

Located at 2605 State Highway 9, the seven-megawatt utility-scale solar farm should be operational by the end of 2017 and will be capable of providing power to 1,500 homes.

Zoe Hanes, president of Pine Gate Renewables, said the company is excited to partner with Dillon County and bring clean, renewable energy resources to South Carolina.

“We look forward to completing this project and continuing to expand the impact of utility-scale solar energy in the state,” Hanes said.

Gov. Henry McMaster said the addition of the Pine Gate Renewables solar farm in Dillon County is another example of how South Carolina is “leading the way in economic development.”

“To see this new partnership with Pine Gate Renewables thrive in Dillon County is to see the hard work of so many pay off for the benefit of the local community and the state as a whole,” McMaster said.
