SC Energy Saves
SC Energy Saves was made possible through a grant from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. Its purpose is to expand residential energy efficiency among underserved communities across the state, and the impact is two-fold… Low to moderate income families benefit from reduced energy costs, and new jobs are created through a community-based energy efficiency retrofit strategy.
Objectives of SC Energy Saves
- Increase visibility for energy efficiency strategies and the community economic development industry in South Carolina.
- Engage new allies and strengthen existing relationships to increase scope, scale, and impact of community-based economic development work in South Carolina relating to energy efficiency retrofit strategies.
- Advocate for state policies that would provide capital (micro-loans and forgivable loans) to small businesses and non-profits entering into energy efficiency and green enterprises.
- Expand institutional resources from regional and national funders to support and finance energy efficiency retrofit strategies in South Carolina.
