Columbia, SC – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading voice for sensible energy and environmental policies for families and businesses, issued the following statement after the South Carolina Public Service Commission (SCPSC) held hearings on a utility’s fee and rate change service proposal.

“While CEA is still reviewing the new proposal, we are hopeful the SCPSC will consider how changes to electricity rates could impact families and small businesses – especially the least fortunate among us,” CEA Vice President of State Affairs Kevin Doyle said. “As the PSC considers this proposal, we encourage them to keep all consumers at the heart of their ultimate decision.”
