Last week both the SC House of Representatives and Senate unanimously passed S.1189, the Distributed Energy Resource Program Act, otherwise known as the Solar Energy bill. This bill, which includes solar leasing, net metering, and an optional distributed energy resource program, will make solar energy available to residential, business and non-profit customers in a new and affordable way, according to the Conservation Voters of South Carolina.
