Happy Anniversary to Me


February 25, 2015   By Jessica Yourko in Customer Care

On the fifth day of February 2001, I walked into a Santee Cooper retail office for the first time as an employee. As excited as I was to begin a new journey, I was scared to death of the challenges that I might face. Learning a new computer system, finding my way around, and educating myself on all of the volumes of policies and procedures were just some of things I feared most.

Over the years my position has changed, and it is only rarely that I find myself back where I started. Truth be told, the thing I miss the most is the people, the customers … YOU! I miss building relationships, hearing how your families are doing and just sharing a simple "hello." I just miss serving our customers face to face.

While times are changing and more and more of our customers want to do business with us over the phone or online, Santee Cooper still provides walk-in locations for those of you who still like to see a friendly face.

Spread across Horry, Georgetown, and Berkeley counties, Santee Cooper has nine walk-in retail offices for customers to conduct business in person. Offices located in Conway, Loris, Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Garden City, Pawleys Island, St. Stephen and Moncks Corner are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Our Carolina Forest office remains open until 6 p.m. during the week to be able to better serve you.

Working in the electric utility industry has been a unique experience for me, and it's one that I am grateful for. I take pride in knowing that I help you power your lives every day. Knowing that I make a difference in bringing electricity to you when you need it is the best gift I could ask for.

Happy Anniversary to me!
