House Utility Ratepayer Protection Committee

Key takeaways from an exchange between State Representative Nathan Ballentine and John Tynan, Executive Director of the Conservation Voters of South Carolina: 1. Solar has to be a key part of SC's energy future. 2. The solar net metering cap is rapidly approaching. Let's extend it. 3. We lost 5,000 SC jobs because of the Fairfield County nuclear crisis. Let's not lose thousands more in solar by failing to act. 4. We have to remove barriers to solar so we can remove uncertainty and allow the industry to continue growing.
