Environmental Intern Program

Santee Cooper’s Environmental Intern program is being suspended for the summer of 2018 as part of a comprehensive set of cost-cutting measures. Some summer internships that are not part of the Environmental Intern program are available. You can learn more here.

We are proud of this program and the nearly 300 students who have actively participated in it. We hope to bring the program back in the future.

The Environmental Intern program began in 1990 as a way to educate students about the work we do to improve the quality of life — particularly in the area of environmental stewardship – for South Carolinians. The program offered 12 interns each summer an in-depth understanding of the many traditional and renewable resources used to make electricity, the importance of balancing environmental issues with meeting electricity demands, and how that electricity is transmitted and ultimately distributed to homes and businesses.
