The EPA will be accepting public comments on the proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) until December 1st. This rule is focused on reducing carbon pollution from existing coal plants and provides unprecedented flexibility for state compliance in an individualized and cost-effective manner.
Increased investment in local South Carolina resources like solar and energy efficiency means more than just cleaner air; it means a stronger economy and increased consumer choice when it comes to powering our state.
Let the EPA know that a balanced plan for South Carolina should result in:
- A substantive role for our state’s vast renewable energy resources like solar and wind in reducing carbon pollution;
- Significantly increased energy efficiency opportunities for homeowners and businesses that can serve to reduce electricity bills; and
- Assurance that the contribution of consumer-side resources like solar and energy efficiency are not undermined by utility-owned energy sources like nuclear and natural gas.
Please take a moment to submit your comments to the EPA and ask them to ensure that the Clean Power Plan results in a balanced approach to creating a clean energy future for South Carolina.
