PSC drops plans for SC solar energy forum

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina regulators have dropped plans for a solar energy forum next month after getting complaints from a group of utilities that provide electricity to mostly rural areas.

The State newspaper reported the Public Service Commission dropped plans for a Sept. 12 public workshop after the Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina complained.

The cooperatives said it's too soon to have a workshop on solar energy since a legislative committee is already studying the idea and should have a report by the end of the year.

Former South Carolina Energy Office director John Clark says there is no reason not to talk about the costs and benefits of solar energy.

Utility companies say adding solar power is not as technologically simple as supporters say.
