Environmental Stewardship

Santee Cooper's environmental efforts are core to our company's vision and beliefs. 

Our Santee Cooper Green Power program was the first in South Carolina to generate electricity for our customers from renewable resources, and it remains the largest program of its kind in the state. And it’s just one example of the innovative and pioneering approaches we’ve taken as environmental stewards.


We are committed to maintaining compliance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental statutes, regulations, enforceable agreements, and permits. We are also committed to continual improvement in environmental performance, through:

  • Proactively seeking ways to enhance compliance,
  • Promoting conservation and renewable energy initiatives,
  • Minimizing environmental risks,
  • Promoting pollution prevention, and
  • Dedicating personnel, equipment, training and materials for the comprehensive Environmental Management System.
