Green Building in South Carolina
If you are one of the many who feel it is important to live in a place where green, environmentally friendly development and building practices are taken seriously then you'll be glad to know your choice for your best place to relocate or retire to South Carolina is a sound decision.
Although not commonly known as an “eco-friendly” place, South Carolina has come a long way toward adopting and encouraging green practices.
South Carolina is sporting one of the fastest growing “green economy” sectors in the country and home to many noteworthy green development projects, like Dewees Island in Charleston, SC or Withers Preserve near Myrtle Beach, SC.
In fact, green building has become quite popular among many local developers in South Carolina, which is good news for future residents looking for green homes in South Carolina.
Recently a platinum-level LEED certified home was completed in Plantation Lakes, SC; one of only 144 such homes nationwide.
The South Carolina chapter of USGBC has branches in all four regions of the state and is an active promoter of more green practices and recently the state government has gotten into the act by passing legislation ensuring all new state building projects will be LEED certified.
The state of South Carolina has also encouraged the growth of the state’s “green economy” which has grown from nothing to almost 900 green businesses and over 11,000 green jobs in a little over ten years.
Some of the exciting new green projects at work in South Carolina include a new biomass energy plant in Hartsville, SC and further study of future coastal wind farms.
