Town of Saluda Solar Project

The Town of Saluda and the SC Energy office have worked together to install a 26 Kw roof top solar system that will offset the energy use at Town Hall. Energy collected by this system will be sold back to SCE&G. The Town currently pays 12 cents/Kw to the power company, SCE&G will purchase power from the town at a rate of 22 cents/Kw. The installed system will pay for itself in about six years. The town also has a 10 year contract with SCE&G for them to purchase power. The entire project, which also includes replacing all of the lighting with LED has been made possible by a loan from the SC Energy Office.
