What is Palmetto Clean Energy (PaCE)?

What is Renewable Energy?

Unlike energy generated from fossil fuels, of which there is a finite supply, Renewable Energy is obtained from resources that are inexhaustible and/or reusable. Typically, renewable energy releases far fewer carbon emissions than energy produced using fossil fuels.

Why Sign Up?

Every $4 donation will add one block (100 kilowatt-hours) of renewable energy to our state's power supply. Over a year, that's the environmental equivalent of not driving a car for 74 days or planting 150 trees!

Sign up today to build a greener future.
