From The Grid To The Grid-Iron: SCE&G And University Of South Carolina Team Up For Green-Powered Rival Game

web posted November 29, 2013

COLUMBIA – The turf at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia won’t be the only thing that’s green when the University of South Carolina Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers take the field Saturday for the most anticipated football matchup of the season.

The University of South Carolina has teamed up with South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) to ensure that all of the electricity needs of the game are met using green power.  SCE&G will displace the amount of electricity generated from traditional energy sources to power Williams-Brice during the game with energy from clean, renewable resources. 

“We are excited and proud to show our garnet, black and green at this year’s Carolina – Clemson game,” said Dr. Harris Pastides, president of the University of South Carolina. “The University of South Carolina is committed to sustainability and improving the environment, and through the efforts of our students and faculty, we have received a gold rating from the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education and attained the highest possible score on the Princeton Review’s green rating.  Partnering with SCE&G gives us the opportunity to share our support for green energy on a larger scale.”

During the time period of the game, it is projected that as much as 24-megawatt hours of electricity will be consumed - enough to power more than 2,220 South Carolina homes.

“Green power partnerships such as working with the University of South Carolina are definitely a win no matter which team you are pulling for,” said Marcus Harris, general manager of SCE&G’s Renewable Energy team. “As we strive to meet the growing energy needs of our customers, we are also conscious of doing our part to protect and conserve the natural resources of the communities we serve for the future.”

Last week SCE&G announced the formation of its new Renewable Energy team that will focus on developing a comprehensive strategy for the design, implementation and marketing of renewable energy resources such as solar, wind and biomass throughout SCE&G’s service territory. The immediate focus will be implementing a solar energy strategy that includes placing up to 20-megawatts of new solar on its system with installations in multiple locations across the SCE&G service territory.  More details will be announced about this and future projects in the coming months.
