Clean Energy for South Carolina sign now

We, the undersigned, are opposed to the coal plant proposed by Santee Cooper in Florence County, near Kingsburg.

Coal fired plants such as the one proposed by Santee Cooper are a leading source of pollution in the United States, including sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen, drivers acid rain and smog; fine soot particles, precursors of lung and heart disorders; mercury, a potent human poison; and carbon dioxide, the leading cause of global warming.

As the states public service authority, Santee Cooper should safeguard the health and the integrity of South Carolinas people and natural resources to the fullest extent possible. It should also invest its resources wisely in order to provide energy services to the people of South Carolina in the most responsible manner. Santee Cooper has not publicly demonstrated the need for the proposed coal plant, nor has it publicly demonstrated that it has thoroughly evaluated its costs.

Santee Coopers proposed plant will impair South Carolinas natural heritage, endanger our health, and pose unnecessary risks to our states economy.

There are cleaner, safer and cheaper alternatives available, including improved efficiency and expanded use of renewable energy. We request that Florence County, Santee Cooper, as well as the State of South Carolina invest in such alternatives instead of another coal plant.

We request your leadership. Please stop plans to build this coal plant in our state.
