The Power of Cooperative Membership

COVID-19 UPDATE

South Carolina utilities have been removed from the Governor's State of Emergency declaration. We are now transitioning to normal business operations. If you have usage that has become past due during this crisis, now is the time to make arrangements to bring that amount current.

Notices have been issued by email and/or postal mail detailing the amount past due, the deadline for bringing your balance current, and what recourse we will take if we don't hear from you by the deadline.

Please pay attention to this notice and contact us if you have any questions. Also please note that financial assistance may be available at Lowcountry Community Action Agency. Applications are available at their office at 1605 Jefferies Highway. You will need a copy of your most recent electric bill to submit with your application.

The lobby and drive-through are currently open for all business activity during regular business hours. Our regular business hours are 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. We will be restricting the number of people in the office at one time to conform to safe distancing practices and we appreciate your patience as we transition back to normal operations.
