Increasing Value for South Carolina

With new leadership and a new focus on sustainability, Santee Cooper is recommitting to our mission – to improve the quality of lives for all South Carolinians – by increasing our value to customers and the state of South Carolina. Accountability means public reporting of our efforts on key initiatives, which we will do here. You can also view our monthly reports to the Office of Regulatory Staff on our ORS Reporting Page.

Lean & Green Power Supply

Santee Cooper is transforming our generation mix, with plans to add up to 1,500 MW of solar, up to 200 MW of battery storage, and conservation. These changes will provide customers a more flexible, sustainable power supply that is also cheaper. This new power supply will keep rates low for years to come.

Financial Health

As a self-funded, state-owned utility, Santee Cooper must preserve our financial health in order to capably and reliably serve our customers throughout South Carolina. We will do so while also meeting the rate freeze and refund terms of the Cook settlement, maintaining low prices, and reducing long-term debt over time.
