Celebrating 90 Years!

Ninety years ago, South Carolina Governor Ibra Blackwood inked his signature on the bill passed by the Legislature that established the South Carolina Public Service Authority, known today as Santee Cooper, to bring electricity to rural South Carolina.

That's quite a milestone.

Today, Santee Cooper serves more than 2 million people, is one of the nation’s largest public power utilities, and is the only large electric utility headquartered in South Carolina. As we look back on our strong legacy, we're also strategically planning for the future.

Learn more about our 90 years of service to the state and how we go beyond the grid.
