COMMUNITIES

WORKING TOGETHER FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Cypress Creek Renewables takes its role as the leader in local solar very seriously. Our intention is to be an asset to the communities in which we serve.

TO THAT END, WE ARE LOCAL PARTNERS COMMITTED TO:

THINK LOCALLY, ACT LOCALLY

Our community-based business practices are designed to encourage local job creation and economic growth. We use local contractors whenever possible and make every effort to position our developments in already disturbed areas close to existing utility substations.

COMMUNITY INPUT

Our solar farms are meant to benefit the communities in which they are located. To that end, we encourage community feedback and work with local leaders to ensure ordinance compliance and minimal visual impact.

LONG-TERM COMMITMENT

We are owner-operators of the majority of our solar farms. We generally enter into a minimum 15-year agreement with a local utility provider. This means we have a vested interest in the well-being of the communities in which we work and strive to be good neighbors and business partners.

OUR GOOD NEIGHBOR COMMITMENT

Minimal Visibility

We commit to seeking community input on how best to integrate the solar farm into the surrounding landscape.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We want to see our communities thrive. To that end, we commit to listening to the feedback of community members regarding protected spaces and we will reinvest in our communities whenever possible.

OPEN COMMUNICATION

Small utility-scale solar farming is a relatively new phenomenon, and we know that you have questions. Our community liaisons are happy to share their knowledge and talk over any concerns you may have.

Testimonials

“Cypress Creek’s continued investment in South Carolina and our people is a reason to celebrate.”

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley

“Calhoun County continues to prove that low taxes, reasonable regulation and a business-friendly environment will make you a fertile field ripe for new investment. These solar projects coming into our county will not only bring us a new revenue stream and construction jobs, but also a new era in helping meet our state’s energy needs. The 34 megawatts generated here in St. Matthews and Cameron will help South Carolina and the United States meet the goal of over one new gigawatt in solar projects by the end of 2016. We welcome Cypress Creek Renewables to Calhoun County!”

Calhoun County Council Chairman David K. Summers, Jr.

“Cypress Creek Renewables’ investment in solar power in Darlington County is consistent with our commitment to environmentally clean growth. Positive economic opportunity, sustainable energy and a clean environment is a winning combination.”

Darlington County Economic Development Partnership Executive Director Frank Willis
