A solar energy bill introduced in the South Carolina House faces an uncertain future. The House Labor, Commerce, and Industry subcommittee heard testimony for and against the bill on Tuesday, Feb. 19, before voting in favor of adjourning debate on the matter. One of the bill’s sponsors explained to The State newspaper that this vote severely damages any chance the bill will get out of the House this term. It may still be introduced in the Senate, however, where proponents believe it has a better chance of passing.
