Solar Schools

Enabling young people, educators, the community and others to take an active interest in South Carolina’s environmental future, Pee Dee Electric and Santee Cooper are working together to secure a brighter future for South Carolina.

The Green Power Solar Schools initiative, the first and only in South Carolina, is designed to encourage interest in the environment and demonstrate the feasibility and challenges of renewable power generation.

Savannah Grove Elementary School in Florence and Plainview Elementary in Patrick received a 2 kilowatt solar system that will provide a teaching, research and demonstration opportunity for students.
