As other South Carolina utilities are improving customer access to our abundant solar resource, Santee Cooper has proposed adoption of punitive rates for customers that want to produce some of their own power. If adopted, the proposal would represent one of the most aggressive anti-solar policies in the country and run counter to the pro-solar policies offered by SCE&G, Duke Energy, and most of the SC electric cooperatives.
Take a moment to submit comments to Santee Cooper by August 27th and protect your right to have solar work for you.

When the General Assembly enacted and Governor Haley signed into law Act 236, it was considered landmark legislation for South Carolina with a goal of promoting more solar power in our state.
Make sure you aren’t left behind by asking Santee Cooper to carry out this vision for the state of South Carolina and for the benefit of their customers.
