HCS Renewable Energy, a renewable energy company headquartered in Austin, Texas, is the newest member to join the South Carolina Solar Business Alliance (SBA) serving as primary staffing subcontractor on utility-scale solar projects nationwide.

South Carolina is making great efforts to move away from coal and explore emerging renewable markets.

The expansion of more utility solar projects provides a unique opportunity for alternatives to traditional power sources, paving the way for The Palmetto State to catch up with its neighbor to the north.

“We are excited about entering the South Carolina market with the projected growth of the US solar market, along with strong regional demand for utility grade solar,” said Ron Nickelson, President of HCS Renewable Energy.

“Every time you read about a new solar initiative that has recently passed or a new solar project development underway, the next thing that follows is the number—usually hundreds—of local jobs it will bring to the area. That’s where the HCS team thrives. We directly impact the economic growth of these communities and we look forward to hiring construction and skilled trade crews throughout South Carolina.”

The SBA is the voice of solar for South Carolina. Their mission is to create a positive business environment for solar energy in South Carolina by advocating for legislative and regulatory changes to existing barriers.
