SolarGen of South Carolina, a wholly owned subsidiary of CMDAJ Holdings, has announced plans to establish operations in Clarendon County. The company is investing $150 million into the solar energy operation.

SolarGen of South Carolina is a clean energy development company focused on creating lower-cost, solar-electric generating facilities for the South Carolina community.

Located in Alcolu, SolarGen of South Carolina is constructing a 125-megawatt (MW) solar farm that will span approximately 500 acres.

“Clarendon County and South Carolina Department of Commerce’s professional, prompt and business “can-do” attitude – combined with their understanding of the important role of sustainable, clean energy to its growing economic base – made selecting this Clarendon County site for our next project a perfunctory, easy decision,” said SolarGen of South Carolina President Carmine Iadarola. “We are very pleased to be part of this team to help grow the South Carolina economic base.”

Operations are expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2024.
