Introduced by Representatives Sandifer and Forrester, H.4949 sought to establish an electricity market reform study committee charged with assessing the ratepayer and clean energy benefits of various energy market reforms, including joining or creating a Regional Transmission Organization.

The conservation community believes that reforming the energy marketplace in South Carolina – including introduction of a RTO in SC – would introduce additional competition into the clean energy marketplace, incentivize cheaper and cleaner alternatives to traditional energy sources, and drive down energy rates for consumers.

After a short debate, the bill passed the House with a vote of 81-31 and was sent to the Senate where it stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
