South Carolina Utilities Offer Green Power Option

The three large investor-owned utilities in South Carolina—South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G), Duke Energy Carolinas, and Progress Energy Carolinas—will be notifying their collective 1.3 million customers of a new green power option this month. Under the new program, administered by the nonprofit Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE), customers of these three utilities can purchase renewable energy in 100-kWh blocks for a contribution of 4¢/kWh, or $4 per block. The purchases are tax-deductible. The utilities will pass the revenue on to Palmetto Clean Energy, which is being funded with a $10,000 grant from the South Carolina Energy Office and $30,000 in donations from the three utilities. To supply the program, PaCE will procure renewable energy from wind, solar, and landfill-gas-to-energy facilities in the region. The program is modeled after NC Greenpower, a similar statewide effort launched by multiple utilities in North Carolina in 2003.
