The power companies and consumers of South Carolina have agreed plans for the state's largest solar farm.
A 3 MW project will be developed in Colleton County, in an area serviced by the Walterboro-based Coastal Electric Co-operative.
The states largest utility Santee Cooper, which agreed the proposals last Tuesday, has issued a request for proposals to build and operate the plant, which will be used as a test-bed to find out how best to incorporate solar into the state grid.
Transmission company the Central Electric Power Co-operative, backed the plan last Wednesday and the state's consumer-owned, not-for-profit electric co-operatives are also involved in the project through umbrella group The Electric Co-operatives of South Carolina.
