On December 7, 2015 the Santee Cooper Board of Directors authorized a two-year rate adjustment for customers in 2016 and 2017 with an average annual increase between the two adjustments of approximately 3.7 percent. The 2016 rates will take effect on April 1, and the 2017 rates will be effective April 1, 2017. These adjustments will help Santee Cooper meet increased costs as a result of a slower than expected load growth following the latest recession and the ongoing V.C. Summer Nuclear Station expansion.
The rate adjustment affects residential, commercial, industrial, municipal and lighting customers. The approved rates also include a rider for customers who want to install rooftop solar panels at their home or business and connect them to the Santee Cooper grid.
The rate schedules below include modifications to the Demand Sales Adjustment Clause approved on January 25, 2015. For more detailed information about the approved rates, please see the links below.
