About Santee Electric Cooperative Inc.

Touchstone EnergyWhat is Touchstone Energy?

Touchstone Energy is a nationwide brand and marketing effort that identifies cooperative utilities providing superior customer service while maintaining a strong local presence.

Hundreds of electric cooperatives across the United States have launched the Touchstone Energy brand to represent the advantages of locally owned and controlled electric service, which is rooted in the direct link that electric cooperatives have with their customers.

The dictionary definition of touchstone is a test of genuineness. Touchstone Energy symbolizes everything that electric cooperatives represent today: electric power, human connections, and the strength of co-ops' commitment to the communities and the consumers they serve.

By pooling resources through the brand with other cooperative utilities, the electric cooperatives will be able to provide consumers information and create awareness of their customer-focused services as the electric utility industry evolves.

What is an electric cooperative?

Electric cooperatives are private, independent electric utilities, owned by the members they serve. Democratically governed businesses, electric cooperatives are organized under the Cooperative or Rochdale Principles, anchoring them firmly in the communities they serve and ensuring that they are closely regulated by their consumers.

What are the benefits of being a cooperative member?

Captial Credits
As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, Santee Electric Cooperative is able to return money that's left over after operating expenses to its members. That revenue is then assigned by Santee Electric Cooperative to each member's Capital Credits account. The amount of a member's Capital Credits is determined by their yearly electricity payments. Capital Credits are just one more way Santee Electric Cooperative continues to put the Touchstone Energy Values of accountability, integrity, community commitment and innovation to work for you. For more information about Capital Credits, download our Capital Credits brochure (pdf).
