South Carolina

“This is a pivotal time for state lawmakers to initiate a 21st century energy policy that satisfies our needs, while ensuring affordable energy for our state’s hard-working individuals, farmers, families, manufacturers and businesses. We look forward to working with CEA to remind South Carolina policymakers of this important opportunity to understand how the state’s energy needs can be tackled with innovative solutions, while also protecting our environment.”

– Ellen Weaver, President and CEO of the Palmetto Promise Institute

South Carolinians spend nearly $3,765 annually on energy. For a low-come person living at the poverty line, that translates to 31 percent of their individual income.
