Renewable Energy

Being environmentally friendly means protecting the environment for future generations.

That’s why SCE&G has teamed up with other regional power suppliers to form Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the development of renewable energy resources – or “green power” -- in our state.

Whether you use a little energy or a lot, you can protect the environment by helping to add more renewable energy resources, such as biomass, hydro, solar and wind energy to South Carolina’s power supply.

If you have questions about Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE), or renewable energy in general, please visit the PaCE Website or contact Trish Jerman with the South Carolina Energy Office at 803-737-8030.

Get Involved
If you would like to get involved in the “green power” initiative, an automatic tax-deductible contribution to Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE) can be added to your monthly bill to go toward the future development of renewable energy sources for South Carolina. For as little as $4 per month, you can support the future development of green energy resources. You may also choose to make a one-time contribution.

We make it easy for you to contribute to Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE):

  • Register online to make recurring tax-deductible contributions of as little as $4 per month to Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE) via your SCE&G bill. You can also call toll-free 1-800-251-7234.
  • To make a one-time tax-deductible contribution for any amount to Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE) directly, visit the PaCE Website.

Why Green Power?
SCE&G is taking innovative approaches to help protect the environment. Converting renewable resources into electricity is part of our efforts to make a difference.

Although “green power” produced from renewable resources initially costs more than the traditional energy sources, it can make a real difference in our efforts to protect the environment.

Now we can all make a difference! Your contributions can help to support the development of renewable energy and help add more renewable energy resources to our state’s power supply for a greener South Carolina.
