South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) on Oct. 9 filed with the Public Service Commission of South Carolina a heavily-redacted renewable Power Purchase Agreement with TIG Sun Energy III LLC for a small solar project.
SCE&G and TIG entered into the PPA on Sept. 30. SCE&G asked the commission to accept the PPA for filing because its terms comply with the intent of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) and commission policy.
TIG is a Delaware limited liability company that intends to design, construct, and operate a solar photovoltaic facility at a site on Leeds Avenue in North Charleston, South Carolina. The TIG Facility would be included in SCE&G’s Distributed Energy Resource Plan. This facility will have a nameplate rating of 0.5 MW (ac) and anticipated average annual net generation in the first year of 941 megawatt-hours (MWh).
