Not a single IRP presented under South Carolina’s Energy Freedom Act has been accepted by state regulators. Could that be because the utilities are acting like the law doesn’t exist?
A new report from ACORE, the American Clean Power Association, and SEIA explores the benefits of instituting real-time, wholesale energy markets across the 12 Southeast states as a way to accelerate renewable resource adoption.
The new capacity–which goes by names like Chester White, Lambert, and Hemingway–represents an addition equal to nearly 40% of all solar installed to date in the Palmetto State.
The fourth edition of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy’s Solar in the Southeast report shows that Florida has passed North Carolina in total installed capacity, while South Carolina has passed its northern neighbor in the context of a solar watts per customer ratio.
South Carolina regulators rejected Duke Energy Carolina and Duke Energy Progress’ Integrated Resource Plans, and demanded a “single and clear” recommendation.
Regulators approved a multi-party stipulation that caps solar applications through the end of 2021 at 1.2 MW for Duke Energy Carolinas and 300 kW for Duke Energy Progress each month.
Regulators agreed to keep net metering in place while transitioning to Dominion Energy’s existing time-of-use rate schedule for new solar customers.
The company has also completed its first utility-scale installation, as well as invested millions into community solar projects.
