I love my co-op

Pitching in to help: Employees of Pee Dee Electric Cooperative, following proper COVID-19 protocols, help deliver meals on wheels in partnership with the Senior Citizens Association (SCA) in Florence County.

South Carolina is blessed to be served by member-owned electric cooperatives that do more than maintain the state’s largest utility network and “keep the lights on” 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Not-for-profit electric cooperatives also support the communities they serve in a variety of ways, from providing scholarships and leadership programs for deserving teens to helping neighbors in need through WIRE programs and Operation Round Up initiatives.

Use this form to tell us what you love most about your local electric cooperative and the people who work there. We’ll review all submitted stories and publish our favorites in a future issue of South Carolina Living. If we use your story (and photos, if you have them), we’ll send you a $25 Visa gift card.
