It’s Easy to Manage Your Energy Service Online with Santee Cooper’s MyEnergyLink

Let me start by saying I am not a winter person. I am also not a cold and rainy person. I live in South Carolina for the sun and the fun. But, for the last three months, it has been cold, wet, and sometimes both. The last thing I want to do is leave my house. Thanks to modern technology, I don’t have to. 

I can order my groceries, clothes for my kids, curtains for the den, and pretty much anything else I desire right from the comfort of my kitchen table. Honestly, the hardest part is bringing my purchases in off the porch once they arrive.

While some people say this way of life is taking the personalization out of transactions (and I agree with them to an extent), it has made managing this pandemic and this weather much easier. Relying on the internet to buy my necessities and conduct my personal business has given me the ability to social distance and stay warm and dry. Even paying my utility bills has become a breeze.
