South Carolina is helping to lead the charge in the transformation of the automotive industry.
As outlined in Executive Order 2022-31, Governor Henry McMaster directed the South Carolina Department of Commerce (S.C. Commerce) to designate an EV coordinator to serve as a resource and point of contact for the business community and industry stakeholders, as well as federal, state, and local government entities and members of the public for EV-related issues or inquires. Additionally, the executive order directed S.C. Commerce to establish an informational webpage to serve as a resource repository to prioritize and enhance ongoing electric vehicle economic development and recruitment efforts. As a result, S.C. Commerce created and launched this site, scpowersev.com.
Also, S.C. Commerce is charged with coordinating the implementation of a strategic initiative designed to prioritize and enhance ongoing economic development, business support, and recruitment efforts with electric vehicle and automotive manufacturers.
