"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." - Thoreau

NOV. 15, 2013 -- It’s pretty amazing how one television ad can transform a measure that didn’t make a blip on the legislative radar screen earlier this year into something that’s now controversial.

Renewable Energy


As electricity rates across South Carolina climb higher and higher, utility customers are looking for ways toease the strain of rising energy bills. Many customers want to generate their own electricity, but few canafford the high upfront costs of installing a renewable energy system. Using the power of free markets, H.3425 empowers any utility customer to finance their own renewable energy project with private capital.Through this policy, legislators can help utility customers lower their electric bills while simultaneouslycreating local jobs and improving South Carolina’s economy.

Conservation Issues


Tell your Senators to VOTE NO TO HOUSE BILL 3290­­­­­ 

Passage of this legislation would not only weaken the ability of local governments to be responsible stewards of their local waste stream, but it would also set a precedent that the General Assembly could nullify an ordinance enacted by a locally elected body acting within the scope of its authority. This could be disastrous for local environments, conservation efforts, wildlife, local economies and even Counties’ bond ratings.

If you want do one thing to oppose nuclear power

this year, this is it!

Attend this meeting and speak out!

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has “confidence” that the high-level radioactive nuclear waste problem will be solved sometime in the future. So the “regulator” declared that it could continue to give 20-year license extensions to aging, brittle, accident- prone nuclear reactors without an objective, scientific study of safety, storage, and disposal of thousands of tons of radioactive waste.
