Incentive/Summary Santee Cooper's Green Power Program was la …
Santee Cooper's Green Power Program was launched in September of 2001. All of the state's 20 electric cooperatives and the City of Georgetown participate in the Green Power Program, which is Green-e accredited. The renewable resources sold under the Green Power Program are comprised of 99% landfill gas (methane) and less than 1% solar energy. Santee Cooper is currently using landfill gas (methane) to produce electricity at six facilities in South Carolina: Horry Solid Waste Authority, Lee County Landfill, Richland County C and D Landfill, Anderson Regional Landfill, Berkley County Landfill, and Georgetown County Landfill. Currently, the Horry Landfill produces 3.3 megawatts (MW), the Lee County Landfill produces 10.9 MW, and both the Berkley County and the Anderson Landfill produces 3.2 MW of power each. The Richland Landfill (operated by Waste Management) produces 8.7 MW, and the Georgetown County Landfill produces 1 MW, for a total generation output of 30 MW. For more information on these projects, see Santee Cooper's [ landfill gas webpage]. Santee Cooper also has solar energy projects at 20 schools across South Carolina. In 2006, Santee Cooper dedicated the first solar green power site in South Carolina at Coastal Carolina University. For more information on these projects, see Santee Cooper's [ solar webpage].In November 2010, Santee Cooper became the first South Carolina utility to install a wind turbine and connect it to the grid. The 2.4 kilowatts (kW) wind turbine, located oceanfront in North Myrtle Beach, produces about 500 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per month in optimal conditions, which would power about 40 percent of a typical residential household. For more information on this project, see Santee Cooper's [ wind webpage]. Participating residential customers are able to purchase this green power for $3 per 100 kWh block. Commercial participants are able to purchase the power for $6 per 200 kWh block.
