Leslie M. Stover Middle School and Fairfield Electric Cooperative celebrated 10 years of “green power” in South Carolina recently with a commemorative tree-planting to symbolize the sustainability and environmental benefits of renewable energy. South Carolinians began powering their homes and business with Santee Cooper green power 10 years ago this fall, when the state’s first green power generating station went online at the Horry County Landfill, according to Fairfield co-op officials. Today, Santee Cooper generates 28 megawatts of green power from generating stations fueled by landfill gas, solar and wind energy.
