Welcome to Adger Solar

Adger Solar, an affiliate of Hudson Energy Development, is a clean-energy development company focused on select southeastern U.S. markets, recently formed by Hudson’s principals along with another renewable-energy veteran, Theo de Wolff. Based on their decades of experience developing several thousands of megawatts of greenfield wind projects, using innovative commercial and financing solutions. The Adger Solar team assembled a portfolio of several hundred megawatts utility-scale solar projects, with multiple interconnection filings, and several highly competitive off-take agreements. The first four solar projects developed by Adger Solar in South Carolina are now in operation, including:

  • the 71.4 MW Solvay Solar Energy – Jasper County and the 10MW Ridgeland Solar Project, both in Jasper County (and now owned and operated by an affiliate of Dominion Energy, Richmond VA);
  • the 74.9MW Shaw Creek Solar Energy Center in Aiken County (now owned and operated by an affiliate of Next Era Energy Resources, Juno Beach, FL); and
  • the 72MW Seabrook Solar Project in Beaufort County (also now owned and operated by Dominion Energy).
A noteworthy aspect of the Seabrook Solar Project is an innovative “solar-only” conservation easement that was adopted in collaboration with the Beaufort County Open Land Trust. This easement will insure that the Seabrook Solar site, which is located in the critical ACE Basin watershed, will remain protected from any other kind of industrial or commercial (other than ground mounted solar PV panels) in perpetuity. This conservation concept may also be of interest to parties interested in open space preservation, and may be implemented at the Flint Mine Solar project in Greene County, NY. See the article here.

These projects will create direct economic benefits for electric ratepayers, resulting from the very low total cost of energy from solar photovoltaic systems, along with substantial environmental benefits.
