South Carolina Solar Habitat Act
On June 1, 2018, Governor McMaster signed into law the South Carolina Solar Habitat Act with the encouragement of Audubon South Carolina and the support of the SCDNR. This legislation allows SCDNR to establish a framework for a voluntary solar habitat certification program and guidance for assisting solar developers in establishing their solar site as pollinator friendly habitat.
