$4 million investment will create 200 new jobs
Governor Henry McMaster and the South Carolina Department of Commerce (S.C. Commerce) today announced that Mojave Energy Systems (Mojave), a clean technology (cleantech) start-up company that develops and manufacturers next-generation commercial air conditioning systems, is establishing its first manufacturing facility in Anderson County. Mojave’s $4 million investment will create 200 new jobs.
Using patented technology, Mojave aims to revolutionize the commercial air conditioning industry while keeping costs competitive. Its climate friendly products reduce negative environmental impacts including lower carbon dioxide emissions. Mojave’s products also deliver significant energy improvements, using less electricity and refrigerant to cool and dehumidify the air.
With target markets in the Southeastern United States and Texas, Mojave looked for a location where it could reach customers in one day or less. Easy highway access and proximity to the Greer Inland Port made Anderson County a prime choice for the company’s manufacturing facility. The company will lease approximately 25,000 square feet of space located at 1428 Pearman Dairy Road in Anderson.
Operations will begin in late November 2023. Individuals interested in joining the Mojave team should visit the company’s careers page.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to the project.
“Cleantech is a growing manufacturing opportunity for our country, and Mojave is in a unique position to create U.S. jobs while significantly lowering its customers’ energy expenses and climate impact. We appreciate the support of the Department of Energy, the state of South Carolina and Anderson County to help us bring this important technology to market."
-Mojave CEO Phil Farese
“We are pleased to welcome Mojave Energy Systems to South Carolina. Their investment will contribute greatly to our state’s economy and provide new opportunities for our people, all while helping consumers use less energy.”
