Green Source Advantage: A proposed sustainability program for large business customers
South Carolina Program Status
In 2018, Duke Energy filed the Green Source Advantage (GSA) program with the Public Service Commission of South Carolina. GSA is specifically designed for South Carolina large business customers who wish to balance their energy consumption with renewable energy to meet their sustainability goals.
This summer, the South Carolina General Assembly passed the SC Energy Freedom Act, also referred to as Act 62, which established comprehensive renewable energy legislation for the state. The act created a pathway for utilities to offer new, voluntary renewable energy programs. The Public Service Commission of South Carolina is currently reviewing Duke Energy’s proposed Green Source Advantage program. Upon approval, the program will become available for customer participation.
More about the Proposed Program and Eligibility Requirements
- Open to nonresidential customers with at least 1 megawatt (MW) of peak energy demand at a single location or an aggregated annual peak demand at multiple South Carolina service locations of 1 MW.
- Total reserved program capacity is 150 MW (113 MW in the Duke Energy Carolinas region and 37 MW in the Duke Energy Progress region), available for 18 months following initial program approval.
Program updates will be posted here as they become available.
