South Carolina has immense potential for renewable energy and the clean energy economy of the 21st century. South Carolina has among the best wind and solar resources of the region, even as our citizens are being affected by climate change and the impacts of costly fossil fuel energy.

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.
