WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's largest solar farm is being planned in Colleton County.

The state-owned utility Santee Cooper said Wednesday it is working with the Central Electric Power Cooperative and the state's electric co-ops to construct the facility.

The new solar farm is expected to generate 3,000 kilowatts of electricity.

Ron Calcaterra with the Central Electric Power Cooperative says solar technology has come a long way in recent years. But Calcaterra says there are still some challenges, including that solar power is not on all the time because the sun is not always shining.
