South Carolina’s energy future is brighter now than it was just a few short weeks ago, thanks to the leadership of Rep. Peter McCoy, R-Charleston.

As the sponsor of the S.C. Energy Freedom Act, Rep. McCoy was instrumental in guiding the legislation through the House committee process and securing its unanimous passage of the bill on the House floor.

The S.C. Energy Freedom Act is good news for both the birds and the people of South Carolina, ensuring greater access to clean, affordable renewable energy and protecting our natural resources.

Furthermore, the solar industry, which has already created thousands of great jobs in South Carolina, is

set to ramp up its investment and job growth in our state now that this legislation has become law.

Audubon South Carolina and its 20,000 members extend our sincere gratitude to Rep. McCoy for the key role he played in making much-needed energy reform a reality for all South Carolinians.

His leadership in introducing and passing the bill means a more secure energy future for our state, and for future generations.
