New and Renewing SCCEBA Members
Over the last few years, SCCEBA’s leadership has refined the organization’s mission around clean energy economic development for our state, as opposed to grant-based research efforts. As a result, SCCEBA is now 100% MEMBER funded. This is a truly remarkable accomplishment for a clean-energy non-profit in a state that many don’t see as very forward-thinking when it comes to energy policy. Given SCCEBA’s sole reliance on member support, the SCCEBA Board and Executive Director Bonnie Loomis say THANK YOU to the following companies who joined or renewed their memberships between January and April of this year.
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Google hits 100% renewable mark, releases data center economic impact report
More than 10 years ago, Google built their first data center in Oregon, and they’ve now built data centers across the US, including one here in South Carolina. These data centers provide the technological infrastructure necessary to power Google’s operations in the United States and contribute significantly to job growth and income gains at both national, state and local level. And, last month, Google announced that those data centers – and all their energy needs – are being fully met with clean energy.
SCCEBA is privileged to have had support from Google since 2013, and Google’s Lilyn Hester, who heads Google’s external affairs in the Southeast, is a member of the SCCEBA Strategic Advisory Committee.
