Cayce, S.C. (March 21, 2016) – SCE&G warns customers of solar panel installers posing as representatives of SCE&G. SCE&G is not in the business of installing solar panels, and does not recommend, endorse or partner with contractors for solar panel installation at homes or businesses.
"There are many credible, responsible solar installation companies to choose from here in South Carolina, but there are a few who have misrepresented themselves as being affiliated with SCE&G,"said John Raftery, general manager of renewable products and services for SCE&G. "Customers should be wary of solar installers who present themselves as partnering with, or working on behalf of, SCE&G."
As a regulated electric utility, SCE&G seeks to educate customers on solar generation and interconnection to the grid, and asks customers to carefully evaluate their options when choosing a solar panel installer.
