Columbia, S.C., Wednesday, March 27, 2024 – Conservatives for Clean Energy South Carolina (CCE-SC) announced today that Grant Fontaine will serve as the organization’s new Project Director. Fontaine will assist CCE-SC with implementing the organization’s clean energy-related initiatives across South Carolina.

CCE-SC works to educate South Carolina’s lawmakers and constituents on the economic benefits of clean energy. As South Carolina continues to benefit from the clean energy economy, recruiting major clean energy manufacturers like Scout Motors, Redwood Materials, and AESC, who will employ nearly 10,000 South Carolinians alone, it is more important now than ever that South Carolina is committed to advancing clean and renewable energy alternatives throughout the Palmetto State to spur new competition and choice in the energy market.

Fontaine’s addition to the team signifies CCE-SC’s growing presence in the state and the significant strides the conservative clean energy movement has made in recent years. With the addition of Fontaine, CCE-SC is well-equipped to ramp up efforts even further to educate grassroots conservatives, lawmakers, and other key stakeholders on the benefits of clean energy.

“Grant is another great addition to the CCE-SC team,” said CCE-SC State Director Nick Murray. “By adding the Project Director position, we are able to increase the frequency and quality of our programming and outreach efforts across the state.”

Fontaine currently works on the Public Affairs Team at First Tuesday Strategies (FTS), the state’s leading hybrid political consulting and public affairs firm. He previously worked for the South Carolina House of Representative’s before joining FTS.

“South Carolina has seen massive clean energy wins over the past few years, and we must capitalize on these wins to further the all-of-the-above message,” said CCE President & CEO Mark Fleming. “Grant will be an asset to the CCE-SC team on upcoming and future projects.”

“I’m excited to join CCE-SC at an important time for clean energy in South Carolina,” Grant Fontaine added. “Continuing to build engaged conservatives on the clean energy movement is key to its long-term success”
