f you spend much time in the State House in Columbia, you might conclude that the primary goal of South Carolina business is to eliminate every vestige of the state’s natural landscape. While there, you would be informed by the business lobby, (and by the chairman of the State Ports Authority), that the goal of the conservation movement is to destroy the state’s economy and send its citizens back to the Stone Age. But if you spend a few moments off the grounds of the capitol, a completely different picture emerges. In the Lowcountry, the leading businesses, including Boeing and Google, are embracing some of the most aggressive environmental responsibility programs in the nation. Boeing has installed the sixth largest solar array in the county, providing a substantial amount of power to construct the Boeing 787, an airplane that is twenty percent more fuel-efficient than the current world fleet. At Google, you would see (if you could get inside) a commitment to “carbon-neutrality” – through energy efficiency using renewable fuels and strategies to offset carbon emissions. The largest companies in the Upstate, such as BMW and GE (with whom we held a joint conference on energy a few years ago), have adopted similar approaches to minimizing their environmental footprints. The logic behind this is twofold. First, world markets – European airlines, for example – want products that are produced by companies with high environmental standards. There is a clear competitive advantage for a company with a robust environmental agenda. This is called enlightened self-interest. Second, many of these companies are run by executives and directors who personally believe in environmental responsibility. This is called global citizenship. The convergence of these two factors has inspired corporate practices that are not simply window-dressing. But the action is not restricted to the large multinationals. Small local businesses are on the bandwagon too. Consider the Charleston restaurant community. Today it is hard to find a locally-owned restaurant that does not emphasize local produce, (a good bit of which is bought from GrowFood Carolina, in addition to dozens of local farmers), and sustainably caught seafood. But it’s probably what you see on the weekends that is most indicative of the relationship the real business community has toward the environment – business men and women who are hikers, surfers, hunters, fishermen, bikers and tri-athletes, business people who take their families on outings in the ACE basin or the Francis Marion National Forest, business people who attend oyster roasts in months with r’s in the names.

From The Director For the past twenty-four years, the Conservation League has represented these business interests. As a result, we have thousands of members who work in the for-profit sector and applaud the efforts the environmental community has made to protect the extraordinary way of life in the Lowcountry. As a result, too, South Carolina is one of the more attractive places in the country for business relocation and start-ups. So what’s up with the business lobby in Columbia? First, they have deliberately polarized the discussion about the environment. The debate over the Pollution Control Act (PCA) last year is one case in point; the current disagreement over solar leasing is another. During the 2012 legislative session, the S.C. Manufacturers’ Alliance and the S.C. Chamber of Commerce strong-armed a bill through the General Assembly that limited the rights of citizens to protect wetlands like Carolina Bays under the PCA. They were apparently provoked by a lawsuit by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project. (SCELP has represented the Coastal Conservation League for decades on dozens of cases including Captain Sams Spit, Angel Oak and the state permits for the cruise ship terminal. Please see Amy Armstrong’s column in this newsletter on the Spit.) SCELP had successfully argued that developers who wanted to fill isolated wetlands must apply for a PCA permit and that citizens could go directly to court to stop unpermitted work. This was a distressing victory to the Alliance and the Chamber, who believe that citizen action to protect wetlands is harmful to industrial development. Yet wetlands protection has not inhibited industry from moving to and expanding in South Carolina. The Boeing project, built extensively in wetlands, came about after conservationists and the

Department of Commerce developed a mitigation program that more than offset wetlands losses with no delay to the project permits. The truth is that the PCA’s citizen enforcement provisions have never been an impediment to much of anything. There have been only five cases filed in the history of the law, one of which was a Southern Environmental Law Center challenge to an arsenic-leaking coal ash landfill in Horry County, owned by Santee Cooper. The goal of that lawsuit is to clean the landfill up and stop the contamination. Why would the State Chamber of Commerce be opposed to cleaning up a leaking coal ash pond perched upriver of Myrtle Beach’s drinking water intake? How is cleaning that facility up bad for Grand Strand businesses and their customers, who happen to depend upon drinkable water? Similarly, why would the Manufacturers’ Alliance oppose a bill that would allow investors to install solar panels on the roofs of stores, churches and other non-profits? Numerous South Carolina businesses – including manufacturers – would like to see the solar economy take off here as it has in other states.

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


One would, at least, think that the business lobby, however misled on the subject of conservation, would be consistent in their advocacy of free markets. The solar leasing bill is a classic example of the potential for the free market to create jobs and protect the environment. In spite of the clear benefits, the Manufacturers’ Alliance has led the campaign against solar leasing. In this case, their motivation has less to do with business development than it does with protecting the monopolies granted by law to the state’s regulated and publicly-owned utilities. In the end, the term “business community” should not be confused with the business lobby in the State House, who seem mostly interested in waging a jihad against the environment while protecting a handful of politicallyconnected clients. The real business community breathes the air, drinks the water and enjoys the protected places that South Carolina offers, thanks to the efforts of conservation-minded leaders – and businesses – who don’t fall for the false choice between prosperity and environmental protection.

Capt. Sams/Cruise Update

Judging the Effects of Our Actions By Guest Contributor Amy Armstrong, Executive Director and General Counsel for the South Carolina Environmental Law Project

"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe." My First Summer in the Sierra -John Muir

Captain Sams Spit


s John Muir, one of America’s greatest conservationists, knew, every action we take has cascades of impacts. So it is with the proposed half-mile long revetment on the back of Kiawah Island’s Captain Sams Spit. Proposed by the Kiawah Development Partners (KDP), this massive bulkhead will directly destroy nearly 3 acres of sandy beach and intertidal habitat in the footprint of the wall. But the indirect impacts of the construction – including building 50 houses on a highly mobile piece of land, the desecration of a pristine area on which the endangered piping plover,

diamondback terrapin, and strandfeeding bottlenose dolphin rely for feeding and nesting, and the elimination of public trust tidelands, effectively blocking the public’s use and enjoyment of this popular site – are even more damaging. South Carolina law clearly states that the Office of Coastal Resources Management (OCRM) must consider these “long-range and cumulative” impacts. Unfortunately, the justices of the state’s highest court are divided over the interpretation of this critical point. To paraphrase a recent political comment, they were against it before they were for it. In November of 2011, the Supreme

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


Amy Armstrong Court ruled that KDP’s permit request for the half-mile long concrete wall along the Kiawah River side of Captain Sams Spit was improperly authorized by Administrative Law Judge Trip Anderson.  The opinion was a tremendous win for the spit and its wildlife and resources, as well as members of the public who frequent the spit.  The sole dissenter of the November 2011 decision was Chief Justice Jean Toal.  Thereafter, in response to a request from KDP, with support from the Manufacturers’ Alliance and the Savannah Maritime Commission, three justices agreed to “rehear” the case and revisit the 2011 opinion.      The Supreme Court reheard the case on April 17, 2012, and issued an unusual and disappointing decision, granting KDP their permit for the concrete wall.  The opinion is unusual because it is a complete reversal of the court’s 2011 decision.  It is also unusual in that there are three separate opinions. The court’s official opinion is signed by only two of the five justices – Chief Justice Toal and Justice Beatty. Justices Pleicones and Hearn dissented, stating opinions consistent with the court’s original judgment that OCRM must consider cumulative impacts outside of the immediate critical area. The third opinion came from Justice Kittredge who agrees with the dissent that OCRM must consider cumulative impacts outside of the immediate critical area. 

Capt. Sams/Cruise Update The opinion is disappointing because Captain Sams Spit is undisputedly a fragile and unique coastal resource – the kind that our Coastal Zone Management Act was designed to protect – and the concrete wall would cover nearly 3 acres of public trust sand beaches used and enjoyed by the public.

But Justice Kittredge concludes that the Administrative Law Court did in fact consider those impacts when deciding to issue the permit and thus concurs with the court's opinion to affirm the ALC and allow the revetment to be built. Thus, the opinion leaves no clear majority to guide decision-makers in the future. The opinion is disappointing because Captain Sams Spit is undisputedly a fragile and unique coastal resource – the kind that our Coastal Zone Management Act was designed to protect – and the concrete wall would cover nearly three acres of public trust sand beaches used and enjoyed by the public. Because of the grave implications for the spit and for future permits in which long-range, indirect and cumulative impacts are important, we have submitted a request to the court to rehear the case.

Union Pier Cruise Terminal


he Union Pier Cruise Terminal in Charleston is one such permit implicated by the Captain Sams case. In February 2013, SCELP filed a request for a final review

conference of the state permit issued to the S.C. State Ports Authority for the new cruise terminal in downtown Charleston. Almost immediately, we realized the fight to reign in cumulative impacts stemming from the proposed project was very similar to our quest to protect Captain Sams Spit. Our challenge is based on DHEC's failure to consider the long-range and cumulative impacts of the project – one of the key arguments against the concrete wall proposed for Captain Sams Spit. Hundreds of concerned citizens submitted evidence that increased cruise operations are negatively impacting Charleston with polluting air emissions, increased traffic congestion and degradation of the historic character of the city. DHEC has the responsibility and duty to consider those farreaching impacts, and to ensure that its permitting decision includes appropriate mitigating conditions, such as the requirement of shoreside power and an annual cap on the number and size of cruise ship visits. Even though the spit decision was a great disappointment, when we break down the three opinions issued by the Supreme Court in the Captain Sams case, it is clear that a majority of the c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


justices agree that in evaluating critical area permits, DHEC and OCRM must consider impacts outside the critical area. Thus, we believe we have a solid basis for our legal claims in the cruise case alleging failure to consider those impacts, and we are hopeful that the Court will reverse its decision in the Captain Sams Spit case.

Legislative Update “

Money, Power and Politics in South Carolina By Guest Contributor Lynn Teague, Advocacy Director for the S.C. League of Women Voters

League of Women Voters of South Carolina


thics laws should insure that our public officials are working for all of us. South Carolina’s laws are not doing that job. Ethics reform must be a central issue for anyone who cares about South Carolina’s environment, education, infrastructure or any of the other ways that government affects our lives. Our state’s future depends upon it. The problems that must be addressed include: • Undisclosed donors and expenditures by “independent” political action committees (PACs), and “blackout periods” before elections when campaign donors are undisclosed until after the election; • “Leadership PACs” that subvert limits on donations to individual candidates and prevent adequate disclosure; • Undisclosed sources of compensation that lead to conflicts of interest; • Poor citizen access to information about government activities, and • Poor enforcement of ethics laws. Bills introduced by Senator Robert W. (Wes) Hayes, Senator Luke Rankin, Representative Bill Taylor, Representative Beth Bernstein, and Senator Paul Thurmond would address many of these problems. S.338 clarifies the definition of a “committee” so we can require disclosure of donors and expenditures by PACs that are not affiliated with any candidate or party. S.338, S.13, and H.3407 would end “leadership PACs.” S. 412 would eliminate the blackout period before elections. H.3163 would make important improvements in the accessibility of information from government agencies. H.3772, introduced by Representative Kenny Bingham and others, covers some of the same ground as these other bills but is weaker in important respects. A full exploration of such complex legislation would be lengthy. However, two issues stand out as essential: disclosures related to possible conflicts of interest and independence of enforcement.

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


Comprehensive personal economic disclosure statements are crucial for real reform. We strongly recommend amendment of S. 338 and H.3772 so that officials are explicitly required to disclose the name and address of each governmental entity, corporation, partnership, joint venture, sole proprietorship, association, union, or other business or commercial entity from whom compensation has been received in any form. We believe that amounts of compensation should also be disclosed. Further, we must require disclosure of the identity of clients of companies owned in whole or in part by the officials. Enforcement of violations by members and staff of the General Assembly is the second crucial issue. At present, the fox is guarding the henhouse and doing a very poor job of it. The transfer of disciplinary authority from the General Assembly to the S.C. Ethics Commission outlined in S.346 and S.347 should be accomplished now, without awaiting an unnecessary constitutional amendment. Further, S.505 should be enacted to enable the multi-agency Public Integrity Unit to do a more effective and professional job of investigating possible ethics violations. H.3772 provides an alternative approach to dealing with ethics violations in the General Assembly, but it does not provide sufficient transparency or independence and should be rejected in favor of the Senate approach. The future of our state depends upon ethics reform that includes comprehensive disclosure of potential conflicts of interest and truly independent enforcement. For more information on these issues, go to html. Call or write your representatives and tell them to support the bills and the amendments needed to move South Carolina into a new era of confidence in our government. Send the message, loud and clear, that we demand real reform now.


Moving Forward on Transportation Reform By Merrill McGregor, Columbia Office Director for the Coastal Conservation League


t is nothing new to South Carolina motorists and truckers that our roads are in dire straights; in fact, we'll have to spend 30 billion dollars in maintenance and repairs over the course of the next 20 years to get them up to standard. This legislative season, CCL’s legislative staff is happy to report that there are bills in the both the House (H.3476) and Senate (S.209 and S.184) that make the changes necessary to rationalize and depoliticize the current transportation funding paradigm, as well as accelerate the SCDOT prioritization processes for qualified projects.

“It just doesn’t make sense to have one state agency building expensive new roads when we can’t even keep up with our current maintenance needs.” Transportation reform measures this legislative session are promising–bills include: measures to disband the State Transportation Infrastructure Bank (SIB) agency, that has a history of funding politically driven, unnecessary, and costly projects such as I-73 and the extension of I-526; folding that stream of income into the South Carolina Department of Transportation, and requiring the SCDOT to develop a process of prioritization.  “We need to set our infrastructure priorities based on facts and determine where S.C. can get the most return for a limited amount of dollars,” Representative Ralph Norman said. Prioritization would expedite projects related to preserving, maintaining, and rehabilitating existing state highways and bridges. “The SIB has been force feeding asphalt to the coast, while the Upstate and many rural areas starve,” Senator Harver Peeler has said. “It just doesn’t make sense to have one state agency building expensive new roads when we can’t even keep up with our current maintenance needs. I’m pleased to have bi-partisan support on a much-needed reform that will help get the politics out of road building.”

Rep Norman goes on to say, ‘The goal here is to bring sunlight to the issue on where our dollars go.  I think there needs to be some equity in geography when you are looking at projects and make sure you are treating the whole state fairly and move S.C. forward.”   CCL supports these efforts for transportation reform and thanks Senators Harvey Peeler (R-Cherokee), Sen. Vincent Sheheen (D-Kershaw), Sen. Greg Gregory (R-Lancaster) and Rep. Ralph Norman (R-York) for helping to responsibly administer taxpayer dollars for the critical road maintenance and repairs that are vital to our safety and economic future.

Planning Our ENERGY FUTURE By Kenneth Sercy, Utility Regulation Specialist for the Coastal Conservation League


ssues related to energy have rapidly transitioned from virtual obscurity to centerpieces of attention at the local, national and global level. Questions about where our energy comes from and how we use it now dominate the political and regulatory landscape, and answering these questions impacts a diverse array of topics ranging from human health, ecological sustainability, quality of life, national security, and economic prosperity. Since 2006, the Coastal Conservation League has positioned itself to work effectively to influence the energy debate in ways that make the most sense for South Carolina. By engaging policy makers, regulators, private industry, and communities, we have worked to find solutions to the problems associated with our over reliance on fossil fuels and the inefficient use of electricity in our homes and businesses. South Carolina now finds itself in the enviable position of having an ability to increasingly meet our future energy demand with homegrown clean energy resources and energy efficiency. But a business-as-usual approach to energy policy and regulation means that opportunities will be lost and undesirable damage will be done to our economy and environment.

Risky Business


oday, nearly half of the electricity consumed by South Carolina homes, businesses, and industrial facilities is produced by centralized coal and natural gas-fired generating units. Billions of dollars flow out of our state each year to Appalachian and Gulf states to purchase the fuel burned at these power plants, and the byproducts of the combustion process compromise air and water quality throughout South Carolina. Our state’s seven nuclear units consume uranium that also must be imported, and create radioactive waste that is accumulating with no long-term storage solution in sight. In addition to these existing economic and environmental impacts, a stack of regulatory wild cards sitting on the table could dramatically increase the cost of producing power from South Carolina’s fossil-based units in the near future. These include pending EPA regulations and the ongoing possibility of federal constraints on greenhouse gas emissions. The price of natural gas is also expected to rise, although by how much is anyone’s guess. These key wild cards and others mean that South Carolina is extremely vulnerable to industry uncertainties.

Energy Seeking Solutions

2011 Energy Savings


% of Utility Retail Electric Sales

Southern Alliance for Clean Energy

ortunately there are many ways, we can reduce today’s impacts and prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. For example, building codes that improve the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses will reduce the need to run coal and gas-fired units. CCL led a successful effort at the State House to update South Carolina’s building codes with this goal in mind in 2012. Innovative financing options for small customer-side generators such as solar photovoltaic arrays can also reduce demand on centralized utility generators. The League is actively supporting efforts to legalize these financing mechanisms in S.C. in order to boost installation of solar arrays, wind turbines, and other clean distributed technologies at homes and businesses across the state. Even with critical initiatives such as these in place, South Carolina will continue to consume vast quantities of electricity, and the majority of that electricity will be generated by our regulated investor-owned utilities as well as our state-owned utility, Santee Cooper. Thus, the decisions these utilities make in the coming years about how to meet electricity demand and modernize their power systems for the 21st century will largely define the ongoing environmental impacts of S.C.’s power sector as well as the state’s preparedness for an uncertain future. A strong utility decision-making process is a fundamental part of the solution to our state’s daunting energy challenges. In that case, you may be wondering how do utilities make decisions about what kinds of resources to invest in? The answer is not simple, but it all starts with a plan – what’s called an “integrated resource plan”, or IRP.

One way to compare energy efficiency impacts among different electric utilities is to examine each utility’s annual kilowatt-hour energy savings as a percentage of annual retail kilowatthour sales. Here, South Carolina’s utilities are compared to other Southeastern utilities as well as national efficiency leaders.

The Energy Buffet


n IRP begins with a look into the crystal ball to establish a demand forecast, which represents the utility’s best estimate of how much electricity will be consumed each year in its service territory. Typically the forecast projects demand for the next 10-20 years and is based on a combination of historical data and expectations about key drivers such as economic activity and weather patterns. With the demand forecast in hand, the utility compares the combined power-producing capacity of its existing fleet of power plants to its forecast of how much power it will need each year to satisfy future demand. The gap between those numbers tells the utility the quantity of new resources it must procure, and when they must be available. There are a multitude of resource options that utilities can invest in to help fill the gap between their existing supplies and future needs. During the 20th century, utilities relied mainly on hydropower, gas turbines, and

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


steam units driven by coal, oil, gas and nuclear energy. Today utilities across the country are increasingly investing in wind turbines, solar technologies, and biomass resources to generate power. Utilities can also develop and administer programs that help households and businesses use energy more efficiently, which can flatten demand growth and reduce the need to invest in new power-generating facilities. All of these resource options and more are at our utilities’ fingertips as they design South Carolina’s future power system. Call it an energy buffet. Each one of these options has its own unique operating characteristics, cost profile, and set of environmental impacts. As part of the IRP process, utilities must properly vet each of these options and typically decide on a combination of several different resources that will complement their existing power systems and fill in their future power needs. For example, a utility needing 1,500 megawatts (MW) of capacity might choose to build an 1,100-MW nuclear reactor, two 100-

Energy MW gas turbines, and implement energy efficiency programs that would reduce energy demand by 200 MW. Or, it could invest in, let’s say, 300 MW of solar, 500 MW of energy efficiency, a 600 MW gas-fired combined cycle facility, and a 100 MW offshore wind farm. As you might imagine, there are technically an infinite number of possible resource combinations that could satisfy a utility’s future demand. The trick is to identify a combination that keeps the lights on and minimizes rate increases to customers, while also safeguarding air and water quality and shielding ratepayers from the risks represented by the market and regulatory wild cards discussed above. No small task, to be sure. Vetting the Candidates


ow do we sift through and evaluate the millions of possible resource combinations? Over the past several decades, utility resource planners have acquired sophisticated computing tools that help them explore how different resource combinations (or “portfolios”) would integrate into their existing systems and impact ratepayers and the environment. Using these tools, utility planners typically assemble several “candidate resource portfolios” that will satisfy customer needs and then evaluate each portfolio’s cost and environmental impact over a multi-decade planning period. In order to do this, the software tools simulate how the power system will operate each hour for the next several decades, taking into account the existing generating units and new resources to be constructed. In order to capture uncertainties in future fuel prices, emissions costs, customer demand, and other factors, this analytical process is modeled many times, so that the performance of each

Duke Energy Carolinas 2012 IRP Portfolio Cost Comparison ($ Billion NPV)

In its 2012 IRP, Duke Energy examined three candidate resource portfolios in detail: one anchored by new combined cycle plants, a second anchored by full ownership of new nuclear units, and a third anchored by partial interests in multiple new nuclear builds. Regardless of the portfolio chosen, larger investments in energy efficiency were found to reduce total costs to customers.

candidate portfolio is tested under a variety of possible future conditions. What the utility’s planning department is left with is a mountain of data that must be organized and reviewed. Ultimately, this data is the basis of a loose roadmap for how the utility will meet future demand for electricity in its service territory. This roadmap is the utility’s IRP. It’s a Process


n IRP is a living, breathing plan that is expected to evolve over time as circumstances change and uncertainties gradually become resolved. Thus, the utility repeats the IRP process each year and refines the plan accordingly. Periodically, the utility will need to move forward with new construction plans or implementation of efficiency programs in order to keep the lights on in our homes and the motors turning in our manufacturing centers. When these moments come,

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


the IRP serves as the long-term, systemwide context for considering and executing an individual construction project. Given the myriad uncertainties facing the electric power industry today, integrated resource planning is both more complex and more important than ever before. The S.C. General Assembly recognized the need for integrated resource planning decades ago and codified a requirement that our utilities engage in this analytical process annually. Our state Public Service Commission (PSC), which regulates the rates and investment decisions of our investor-owned utilities, recently acknowledged the value of increased attention and stakeholder involvement in the process by declaring the utility IRP process as an official proceeding into which stakeholders may intervene, and in which the PSC will explicitly determine whether each utility has satisfied the Commission’s IRP requirements.

Energy CCL has partnered with Southern Environment Law Center (SELC) and Southern Alliance Clean Energy (SACE) to comment on utility IRPs in previous years and remains actively engaged in these proceedings before the PSC. Each year, the League files lengthy written responses to the utility IRPs that analyze their content, identify key information gaps, and recommend changes to be implemented in future plans. We have coupled these detailed technical filings with allowable ex parte briefings before the PSC, which provide an opportunity to review our IRP analyses at a high level and respond directly to questions and reactions from the commissioners. Decision Time


he key to good integrated resource planning is to be transparent, thorough, and responsive to stakeholder concerns. Although South Carolina has a solid process in place, there is room for all of our electric utilities to improve in these areas. Transparency, for example, means disclosing the makeup of the candidate resource portfolios examined in the IRP analysis, including those not selected, and providing clear justification for selecting the preferred portfolio based on a comparative review of simulation results. In other words, tell us what your options are and why you choose what you choose. Surprisingly, not all of our utilities do this at present. A thorough IRP analysis is one that examines a diverse variety of candidate resource portfolios, including those that feature aggressive implementation of energy efficiency and increased investment in renewables. Duke Energy, for example, examined a High Energy Efficiency portfolio in its 2012 IRP and estimated it would save customers over $4 billion relative to its preferred plan. Finally, responsiveness entails

The decisions our utilities make in the coming years about how to meet electricity demand and modernize their power systems for the 21st century will largely define the ongoing environmental impacts of S.C.’s power sector as well as the state’s preparedness for an uncertain future.

willingness on the part of the utility to listen to stakeholder concerns, clarify any misunderstandings, and address disagreements openly. Over the years, the relationships CCL and our partners have built with our utilities’ resource planners have given us access to confidential utility modeling data and opportunities to work through our concerns alongside planners in a workshop environment. We have also seen tangible changes to utility IRPs in a response to our input. These are encouraging developments and the League is excited to continue to build on these successes moving forward. Economic development modeling and better risk analysis practices are two additional opportunities to improve integrated resource planning in South Carolina. Clemson University’s Strom Thurmond Institute recently estimated that construction of a large wind farm off the South Carolina coast would create about 4,000 jobs including 700 permanent direct, indirect, and induced jobs after completion. This analysis is

c o a s t a l c o ns e r v a t i o n l e a g u e


illustrative of the value of modeling the macroeconomic impacts of resource planning decisions, such as impacts on employment, gross state product, and government revenues. To date, none of our utilities have included these types of analyses in their IRPs. Risk analysis is another critical component of long-term resource planning. We have referenced the proverbial crystal ball, but as we all know there is no way to accurately predict the future. The best we can do is plan so that we get good outcomes no matter what happens. Notably, Santee Cooper’s current IRP projects that its reserve margin will reach 40% within five years, despite the utility’s 15% reserve target. This represents significant excess plant capacity that Santee Cooper is stuck with. Although the Great Recession led to unexpected shortfalls in Santee Cooper’s customer demand, demand forecasts are a universallyrecognized source of uncertainty in resource planning. Effective risk management can minimize the odds of ending up in such a situation, where ratepayers are forced to foot the bill for investments the state does not explicitly need. If utilities take care to transparently examine a diverse array of candidate resource portfolios, implement rigorous risk management practices, and evaluate the macroeconomic impacts of their resource choices, IRP analyses are likely to reveal the prudence of investing in larger shares of efficiency and renewable energy resources. These gradual shifts away from traditional resource options will benefit not just ratepayers via lower, more stable electricity costs, but South Carolinians as a whole via local development of new industries, reduced need to import fuels from other states, and protection of our state’s unique communities, landscape, and wildlife. It all starts with a plan.

25th Anniversary

Prosperous Lowcountry, Flourishing Planet

Coastal Conservation League 25th Anniversary Conference May 8-9, 2013 • Charleston, SC

“There is no doubt in my mind that the Coastal Conservation League is one of the finest regional environmental groups in the country. I shudder to think what would have happened to the South Carolina coastal plain without its 25 years of vigilant, inspired effort. Now CCL is looking ahead to the next 25 and asking itself what is it going to take to restore and to sustain people and planet in a particular place of great human, cultural, and biological wealth.” –Gus Speth, Author of America the Possible


ver the past quarter century, the Coastal Conservation League and our conservation allies have substantially shaped the future of the South Carolina Lowcountry. We have helped citizens understand the importance of the landscapes that surround us and given them the confidence and the tools to fight for the places we all love. The next 25 years will be even more critical for the Lowcountry. We will discover whether the residents of our region can choose a course that protects and enhances our natural ecosystems and human communities, and whether we will play a positive role in sustaining the global environment. This undertaking demands that we come together as a community to reflect on the past and explore a path forward. Please join us on May 8th and 9th for a conversation about how to achieve the vision of a prosperous Lowcountry and a flourishing planet. During this two-day conference we will be alerted to the status of the world’s environment and we will work together to discover what our role should be in repairing and enhancing it. These two days will reveal the magnitude of the challenges we face and inspire us to act with purpose and conviction. We will confront our moral responsibility to the planet and the future, and learn about the spiritual and religious foundations that have inclined us to protect or abuse nature. We will also explore the critical questions of how our economic systems can better align with the goal of a sustainable planet, and how a more robust democracy can advance conservation. The conference will take place May 8th and 9th at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina. For additional information on the speakers and to register for the conference, please visit:

What’s New at GrowFood Carolina? Charleston Wine + Food Festival


rowFood Carolina was thrilled to be named as the 2013 Culinary Community Partner at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival! This honor gave us the opportunity to feature GrowFood farmers and produce. We owe big thanks to Millgrove Farms, City Roots, Rebecca Farms, Hudson Family Farm, Halve Ewe Herd, and Brickyard Point Farm for hanging out with us at the GrowFood table and to HUSK, Roti Rolls, Duvall Catering, Food for the Southern Soul and Burwell’s for preparing some of our delicious vegetables to be served to the thousands of Wine + Food Festival connoisseurs. GrowFood General Manager, Sara Clow, had the privilege of MC’ing a cooking demonstration with Michael Anthony from the Gramercy Tavern in New York City and Takashi Yagihahsi from Takashi in Chicago Lisa Jones-Turansky, Carol and Ben Williams featuring GrowFood Carolina kale.

Find the Fork


ave you found the fork? This Spring watch for these and other GrowFood items on local retail shelves and incorporated in many local restaurant menus: strawberries, blueberries, microgreens, bok choy, broccoli, arugula, tatsoi, sweet potatoes and spring onions. For purchase locations, please visit where-to-find-it/. GrowFood Carolina is working with the S.C. Department of Agriculture to promote the Fresh on the Menu Program where restaurants commit to having 25% or more of their menu include local produce. Many restaurants in Charleston have said that this goal is much easier thanks to the existence of GrowFood Carolina. Stay tuned for a new mobile app that will help you locate “Fresh on the Menu” establishments, learn about the chefs and farmers, and more! CAROLINA

GrowFood New Projects Sprouting at GrowFood Carolina Warehouse!


rowFood Carolina makes it easy for Charleston to eat local and support local farmers, but Growfood’s commitment to promoting a local food community extends beyond selling and distributing produce for local farmers. Growfood has partnered with Crop Up, a local consulting practice that focuses on community-based food projects in urban areas, to design the Growfood Carolina Education and Demonstration Garden. Volunteer workshop participants have practiced and learned a diverse array of gardening skills that could be applied in their own gardens. Participants learned how to build raised beds, compost, prepare Libby Smith and Sara Clow irrigation systems,

Elizabeth Beak (seated), Molly McDonald, Jason McDonald, Collin Blake, Libby Smith & Vaughn Spearman.

attract pollinators, and mulch naturally with no digging. They also learned season extension methods and how to diversify production to maximize garden productivity. Some of these methods include: inoculating wood with edible mushroom spores, planting cold and heat tolerant herbs in the garden, growing fruit in small spaces, and turning a raised bed into a greenhouse.

Welcome Andrew Werth

B The Next Generation in Local Food


tudents from Meeting Street Academy will be able to get a hands-on lesson in gardening at the GrowFood Demonstration and Education Garden. This spring will be the pilot season for first graders to come to the warehouse every other week for “garden classes.” If you are involved with a local school whose officials might be interested in using the GrowFood Garden to help children learn about food, please let us know.

orn in Madison, WI, and raised in Little Rock, AR, Andrew graduated from the College of Charleston in 2008 with a degree in Studio Arts and a concentration in sculpture. A lifelong passion for cooking and a curiosity about self-sufficiency took him across the country to work for farms managing CSAs and small livestock in Washington state and North Carolina. Building small farm businesses has increased his passion for local foods, and he has learned how to garden by trial, using The New Organic Grower as his bible. In early 2012, he began planning his own small vegetable farm, Spade and Clover, which is a part of Lowcountry Local First's Dirtworks Incubator Farm at Rosebank Farms on Johns Island. Spade and Clover Gardens is a two-acre diversified flower and vegetable farm that offers a CSA and can be found at the Charleston Farmer's Market. Andrew started selling to GrowFood in February when he had a glut of kale and liked it so much in the warehouse that he asked for a job!

Giving Back

A Quiet Philanthropist with a Gracious Heart:

Dorothy Duval Brown Smith (April 20, 1930-October 9, 2012)


orothy Smith, more commonly known to friends and family as Dot, was a quiet philanthropist who supported numerous causes, some known only to her. She graciously donated to the League for more than fifteen years. Her support continued even after her death, when we received the largest planned gift donation in CCL history on January 2, 2013. Dot passed away on October 9th, 2012. She grew up loving the beach, boating, and fishing. Throughout her life, Dot enjoyed traveling and outings with friends and family, as well as providing a loving home for her cats. Dot is survived by her sons and their families: Martin Field Smith of Atlanta and his daughter, Elizabeth, of Boston; William Duval Smith and his wife, Bonnie, of Columbia, and their daughter Meredith (and husband David) Gary-Taylor of Columbia, and Richard Marshall Smith and his wife, Novelle, of Columbia; and their daughters, Lisa Attaway of Columbia and Stella of Rock Hill. We hope that Dot inspires you to join CCL’s planned giving society. For questions about planned giving or to become a member of the Coastal Legacy Society, please contact Catherine McCullough at or visit our website at: support-us/planned-giving/

A gift from your trust or your will is for you if: • You want to help ensure the Conservation League’s future, viability and strength. • You want the flexibility of a gift commitment that does not affect your current cash flow.
