The changing coast

Sunny day flooding and punishing storms are a way of life now along South Carolina’s coast. SELC attorneys and issue experts are collaborating with partners, local governments, state and federal agencies, and other stakeholders – and also bringing litigation where necessary – to oppose development proposals that would exacerbate flooding while advocating for nature-based solutions to build a resilient future.

Stopping destructive road projects

SELC is engaged with partners and community leaders to avoid repeating the mistake of sacrificing neighborhoods and wetlands for more pavement and traffic.

SELC is engaged with utilities, customers, and solar companies to ensure South Carolina continues to see economic and environmental benefits from low-cost, low-risk clean energy. With the costs of coal and gas climbing to record levels, South Carolina utilities must have clean and diverse resource portfolios to protect South Carolina ratepayers.
