"Coble: 3 ways SC will benefit from rise of renewable energy"

The State

December 27, 2015

Bob Coble, Chair Nexsen Pruet's Public Policy and Governemental Affairs Group in South Carolina, wrote a letter to the Editor published by Columbia's The State on December 27th.

In it, Coble details how "South Carolina has the potential to be an innovation center for many of the new green technologies."

It begins:

The Paris Climate Summit Agreement that was signed this month is clear evidence that the global economy is moving toward more reliance on renewable energy. How our nation responds to climate change and global warming is a controversial issue, but one thing is clear: South Carolina is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this move to renewable energy, for a number of reasons.


First, South Carolina is becoming a leader in solar energy, thanks in large part to the Legislature's adoption of Act 236 in 2014.


More from The State.

Bob Coble served as Mayor of the City of Columbia from 1990 until 2010. Today, he advises business leaders and professionals on the inner-working of South Carolina's business and political landscape as part of his enduring commitment to economic development and prosperity in the Palmetto State.
