SCCEBA's Clean Energy Connection



SC Energy Freedom Act

Last month, we shared our POLICY PERSPECTIVE on the SC Energy Freedom Act noting the hallmarks of good public policy that the compromise version of this bill contains: principals of transparency and open public discourse.  The bill also contains provisions that acknowledge the increasing role of diverse voices and perspectives in the energy marketplace by affirmatively including them during Commission proceedings.

Just this week, long-time South Carolina solar advocate Bruce Wood with Sunstore Solar, a SCCEBA member and supporter since 2014, added his voice to the public conversation on this bill through an Opinion piece in the Greenville News.  As Bruce said, “(g)iven the growing demand for clean energy, and the increasing role it is playing in South Carolina’s economy, the solar industry simply needs stable policies with limited government restriction in order to continue its growth.”

We simply couldn’t agree more that stable policies and limited government restriction are critical to the growth of our state’s clean energy economy.  In a market-based environment, they are as fundamental to good public policy as are the principals of transparency and open public discourse we complimented last month.

As the SC Energy Freedom Act moves to the Senate floor for debate, SCCEBA will continue to share our support for this bill, and we encourage you to do the same.

SC Energy Freedom Act

“Chaos is simply order waiting to be deciphered” – Jose Saramago, The Double

Last May, the General Assembly’s actions on the “solar bill” seemed like sheer chaos. We wondered, with others, if order would come before our state ran off the “cap cliff” for residential solar within the regulated utility system.  Indeed, it appears that chaos has been “deciphered,” and the General Assembly is working to adopt order through a sensible, consensus-driven approach away from that cliff. 
The South Carolina Energy Freedom Act (H.3659) offers a solid, logical transition for solar beyond the provisions of Act 236 of 2014, and SCCEBA heartily applauds the extensive collaborative work that created the compromise version of this legislation.

While the compromise bill is focused primarily on solar to the exclusion of other forms of distributed generation, SCCEBA understands this is merely reflective of current conditions in the South Carolina market and not an intentional effort to avoid broader clean energy policy development.  And, we do not believe this factor should hinder passage of the legislation.
Nevertheless, we caution the Legislature that the clean energy market is changing rapidly  - more rapidly than laws can be made – and ask that they realize that their efforts to address energy policy need to continue in earnest and not wait until the next clean energy “cliff” is reached.
To that end, SCCEBA respectfully suggests that the General Assembly include clean energy matters in their annual course of business, much as the budget and education are already.  The clean energy market requires as much, and the state’s citizenry deserve as much.
Beyond the solar aspects, the compromise version of H. 3659 includes provisions that are firmly grounded in the principals of transparency and open public discourse, and SCCEBA makes note of these with approval because they are hallmarks of good public policy.
The bill requires that utilities:

  • offer multiple – rather than just one – future scenarios into their annual Integrated Resource Plan filings, including scenarios with higher integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency,

  • file a voluntary renewable program for commercial and industrial customers that protects against cost-shifting, and 

  • increases the level of scrutiny used in regulatory proceedings to approve new power generation proposals, including the allowance of a third-party evaluation if determined to be in the best interest of the public.

Each of these provisions acknowledges the increasing role diverse voices and perspectives in the energy marketplace by affirmatively including such during Commission proceedings.  Historically, state law has hampered such critical conversation, even if unintentionally.
 As the Senate continues its deliberations on H.3659, SCCEBA will be reaching out to lawmakers to offer this SCCEBA POLICY PERSPECTIVE. We encourage our members and supporters to do the same.

A Message From Our Executive Director

Dear SCCEBA Member,

Thank you for your past and continued support of our South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance.  

Since our inception nearly decade ago, SCCEBA has advocated for policies and provided information to encourage clean energy innovation and economic development. We strive to be a collaborative organization that supports sustainable energy policies in harmony with our environment. 

We are grateful for our diverse membership, and the past leaders who helped make SCCEBA’s annual Clean Energy Summit South Carolina’s signature energy forum and shaped our regional Business Roundtable events into valuable opportunities for information sharing.  It is important for many voices from the diverse sectors of our economy - commercial and industrial; municipal, state, and federal; residential and non-profit - to engage together in developing policies that have broad support and are devoid of narrow interests. We are grateful for your participation in and being part of this collaboration to date.

With the new year, Todd Delello ended his six-year term as SCCEBA Board Chair.  Todd’s focus on establishing a business and economic development mission for SCCEBA sharpened our organization’s focus on SC clean energy policies rather than national initiatives.  Under Todd’s long leadership tenure, SCCEBA also became entirely reliant on state-based membership support, rather than grants from national groups.  The entire Board and I extend our gratitude and appreciation to Todd for his leadership.  Through his contributions to SCCEBA, our organization is well-positioned to voice sensible state-level policies that create a market for innovative products and devices in a new age of energy.

Grant Reeves, Senior Vice-President - The InterTech Group, will step up from Treasurer to become SCCEBA’s new Board Chair. He will be joined by Weston Adams, Partner - Nelson Mullins law firm, as Co-Chair.  And, Robert (Bob) Long, retired SCE&G, will become our new Treasurer.

Already, the 2019 legislative session brings a variety of bills that impact the commercial interests and jurisdiction of our members. How these proposed bills would change the framework of 2014’s Distributed Energy Resource Program Act affects everyone in our state.  SCCEBA will listen to our members, draw on our collective firsthand experience and provide a forum for public discourse as these bills are debated. 

The new year also welcomes Dominion Energy to our state energy stakeholder conversations, just as efforts to move past the VC Summer project continue to weigh on Santee Cooper.  As energy professionals and leaders, we will work together to achieve a positive outcome during these transitions.

Your membership renewal and continued financial support of SCCEBA is crucial for us to continue.  We greatly appreciate your ongoing commitment to our organization and to clean energy in South Carolina.

Best Regards,


Bonnie Loomis
Executive Director
