Brewer Renewables, a subsidiary of Seahorse Capital, announced plans to establish operations in Orangeburg County. The company is investing $85 million into the new operations.
Founded in 2019, Brewer Renewables develops sustainable, renewable energy projects in the southeastern United States.
“We appreciate the help and support of the Orangeburg County Council, county administration and the Orangeburg County Development Commission to make this 100-megawatt solar energy project a reality and are excited to contribute to making Orangeburg County the solar capital of South Carolina. We look forward to continuing to work with and support the county and the Development Commission to promote additional economic development in the area and to being a long-term member of the community,” said Brewer Renewables President and CEO Kevin Casey.
Located in Orangeburg, Brewer Renewables’ new solar photovoltaic project will be located throughout a combination of cultivated farmland and managed timberland. The project will include a 100-megawatt solar facility with the option for additional energy storage of up to 100 megawatts and 400 megawatt-hours, which can provide power to roughly 20,000 South Carolina homes.
The project is expected to be operational in 2023.
