Last week, South Carolina lawmakers passed the Energy Freedom Act to open up the state’s energy market. As part of the legislation, renewable energy developers will now be able to negotiate contracts directly with businesses which will allow the state’s solar industry to continue expanding.

“Strong support from South Carolina businesses was critical to ensuring the bill’s passage. Employers for Renewable Energy was proud to be a part of this effort,” said Joe Rinzel, Executive Director of ERE.
