Partnership Launched to Help S.C. Save Energy and Money

(Columbia, SC) A partnership launched today between South Carolina’s electric cooperatives and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI), a non-profit public policy education and outreach organization based in Washington, D.C., is a key step in developing a pilot project to help rural South Carolinians save energy and money in their homes.  The collaboration between the co-ops and EESI to design and implement this pilot project is being supported by a $225,000 grant to EESI from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.  The project was one of nine selected from among 372 pre-proposals that the Foundation received through a national competition soliciting ideas for scalable approaches to spurring energy efficiency retrofits of existing buildings in the U.S.
