Lawmakers gathered at the State House on Thursday to announce details on solar bills filed in the state Senate and S.C. House to allow suppliers to provide alternative energy options.

“The days of utilities deciding our energy policy are over,” said state Rep. Nathan Ballentine, R-Richland, co-chair of the S.C. Energy Caucus.

Sponsored by state Sen. Tom Davis, R-Beaufort, and S.C. House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Peter McCoy, R-Charleston, the bills include measures that would increase transparency, modify net-metering policies, allow solar energy to compete on the open energy market, and provide a way for lower-income residents to take advantage of low-cost solar energy.
