    Myrtle Beach Center  -  Santee Cooper wants to incorporate the use of solar energy at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  Their design allows for a 24 foot Rain Canopy lined with solar cells to be erected in the Convention Center’s plaza.  The solar cells would generate five-kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to light 50 100-watt light bulbs.  As of June 2004, this plan has yet to be approved by the City council.  http://www.wbt.com/news/detail_wbt.cfm?article_id=18084
