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.
