    Nuke Flop Sets So. Carolina Solar In Flight

    Nuclear debacle energizes push for solar power expansion

    Sammy Fretwell, January 9, 2018 (The State)

    “As the fight continues over whether South Carolinians should get their [nearly $2 billion] back for [the failed V.C. Summer nuclear expansion] project, another battle is developing that could affect monthly electricity bills…South Carolina is nearing a state-set limit on solar energy that would curtail the expansion of rooftop solar systems for homeowners, industry officials say…In the next two years, SCE&G and Duke Energy are expected to reach the state-mandated limit, making it harder for people to add solar panels to their roofs…The Solar power industry is lobbying the South Carolina legislature to order state counties to give it tax breaks. The tax breaks, the industry says, are necessary to attract solar investment to the state…Since the Legislature voted in 2014 to ease some restrictions on solar power, the industry has added about 2,000 new jobs…dramatically increasing the number of home solar systems…[But the] utilities, fearful a wholesale move to solar power could cut into their profits, negotiated a limit on the expansion of solar energy…[To save jobs and grow solar, advocates say the cap must be] increased or eliminated…” click here for more
