TO ENCOURAGE SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THIS STATE TO AVAIL THEMSELVES OF ALL AVAILABLE ENERGY EFFICIENCY INCENTIVES AND REBATES PROVIDED BY THEIR LOCAL UTILITIES.
Whereas, providing a comfortable setting plays an important role in our school districts' vital duty to educate the citizens of the Palmetto State, especially its children; and
Whereas, in their efforts to ensure schools provide comfortable settings for students to learn and teachers to teach, school districts also must be alert to the importance of ensuring the efficient use of our state's precious energy resources and taxpayer funds used to pay for energy supplied to these schools; and
Whereas, in an ongoing effort to encourage utility customers to take certain measures and engage in appropriate behaviors intended to increase the energy efficiency of their customers, energy utilities frequently offer an array of financial incentives including rebates and rate discounts, among others; and
Whereas, the General Assembly finds it critical to encourage all public school districts in this State to actively and intentionally avail themselves of all such available energy efficiency incentives provided by the utilities in which their schools are located. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, encourage school districts in this State to avail themselves of all available energy efficiency incentives and rebates provided by their local utilities.
