Many individuals and organizations feel they cannot take action to improve energy efficiency or replace fossil fuels with alternatives without some financial assistance. A variety of such assistance is available, including low interest loans, tax incentives, utility incentives and occasionally grants.
One of the duties assigned to the Energy Office by the South Carolina Energy and Efficiency Act of 1992 was to serve as a central clearinghouse for information related to energy use and energy efficiency in South Carolina, along with federal and state energy tax incentives.
The Office of Regulatory Staff (ORS) is soliciting proposals for the development and administration of a low interest revolving loan program to support energy efficiency, renewable energy and alternative transportation projects in the commercial and industrial sectors of businesses operating and located in the State of South Carolina.
