Solar Share at Santee Cooper Harnesses Sun Power to Your Benefit and Convenience


November 15, 2017   By Susan Mungo in Green Energy

The Colleton Solar Farm near Walterboro, S.C. is part of Santee Cooper’s commitment to renewable energy.

I am one of those people who like to be able to have my cake and eat it too.

I admit that most of the time life does not work out that way. Every now and then, though, we all get lucky.

Santee Cooper has a solar program that has made being green and using solar power a situation where I can not only have my cake, but I can eat it, too. I can also use the sun to bake that cake. 

Solar Share is a community solar program that allows me to offset my energy usage with solar power. But I don’t have to install or maintain anything! No rooftop panels and no special equipment in my home, and Santee Cooper automatically credits my bill based on the size of my subscription and my share of the monthly output produced at the Colleton Solar Farm near Walterboro.

Rather than spend money on equipment, I buy a subscription in amounts that range from 1 to 6 kilowatts. Santee Cooper even offers me a rebate for each kilowatt I purchase to offset my cost.

On top of all the other positives, if I move to another home within Santee Cooper’s territory, I take the solar share with me and it is applied to my bill at my new Santee Cooper location.

All the ingredients are there. All you have to do is sign up. When you buy your subscription of solar share, you can enjoy a cake baked by your solar share of the sun.
