South Carolinians send more than 8 billion dollars out of state annually for energy fuels like coal, natural gas, and petroleum.

The opportunity of the clean energy economy is too great for South Carolina to pass up, yet to realize this opportunity, engaged citizenry and proactive leaders must overcome entrenched interests by speaking up and calling for clean energy now.
