Resources

Count on your cooperative—your trusted energy source.

We have the resources to help you understand your energy options. Whether it’s learning more about renewable energy or helping you find out where power outages are occurring, we’re here for you.  See our resources below.

Solar

Because interest in solar power generation is growing, we created a website to help answer all of your important questions about this renewable resource. At mySCsolar.com, information there can help answer whether your home is suitable for solar panels and whether an investment in a rooftop solar system makes good financial sense.

If panels on your property makes you a little nervous, you can learn more about the electric cooperatives’ Community Solar program at mySCsolar.com. Launched in 2016, the initiative creates the largest network of community solar farms in South Carolina.

Education

EnlightenSC is an energy education program developed by educators for the consumer-owned electric cooperatives in South Carolina. The co-ops created EnlightenSC as a way to help teachers better access energy-related information and activities for their classrooms, resources designed to get young people excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics: the so-called STEM subjects.  This website is a clearinghouse of lessons and activities, compiled from resources across the country, and correlated to S.C. science education standards for each grade level. The program has expanded to include Saturday workshops and summer graduate courses for educators at no charge. EnlightenSC also sponsors the SC 4H Engineering Challenge – a competition for S.C. students.

Outages

When severe weather strikes, power outages are a very real possibility. To help you know where outages are occurring in the state, we’ve developed this near real-time map. Use it to stay up to date on power outages at your co-op and others in S.C.

How power is restored

Restoring power after a major outage is an enormous undertaking that involves much more than simply throwing a switch or removing a tree from a line. For a graphic representation of the restoration process, see “How Power is Restored.”
