Website informs consumers on solar in S.C.

myscsolarSouth Carolina’s electric co-ops are shining a light on solar energy with a new informational website for consumers,

“The site was created as a resource for co-ops and their members,” says Lindsey Smith, vice president of education at the Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina, Inc., the state trade association for the state’s co-ops.” As co-ops make decisions about their respective solar policies or product design, will be updated to reflect them.”

The website includes information about solar basics, finding an experienced, certified contractor to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, a “Do the Math” page that gives tips to size a PV system for a home, information about financing and tax incentives and a calculator to determine estimated costs and savings.
