This South Carolina solar farm covers the equivalent of 500 soccer fields and will supply energy certificates to Solvay.

A recently commissioned South Carolina solar energy farm, the state’s largest, is helping Solvay’s specialty polymers unit come closer to its commitment to use 100% renewable energy for all products destined for electronics maker Apple.
