Palmetto Electric Cooperative and Santee Cooper are the driving force behind delivering sustainably sourced Green Power to our state's only PGA TOUR golf tournament.
For more than a decade, the RBC Heritage has been committed to powering every putt with energy made from clean, renewable resources right here in South Carolina.
As we tip our cap to the legacy of the sport, it's good to know that Green Power is driving a better future for us all.
Green goes far beyond the fairways in South Carolina — it can power more than you ever thought possible.
See, Green Power is electricity generated by renewable resources like solar, wind and methane gas in selected landfills. Customers of Santee Cooper, Palmetto Electric and the state's other electric cooperatives have a chance to support renewable power growth by voluntarily purchasing Green Power through their monthly electric bills or for their events, like RBC Heritage. Proceeds from Green Power are then reinvested into additional renewable energy sources. And because these resources are replenished naturally, Green Power helps protect our beautiful state.
