History and Mission Statement

Santee Electric Cooperative was formed in the late 1930's and was chartered on December 14, 1939, after years of hard work by volunteers who scoured the countryside getting members to sign up for the service.

No one else would provide electricity in the rural areas. Santee Electric's primary purpose is to provide its members with the best possible electric service at the lowest possible cost.

Service Area

Santee Electric Cooperative's service area includes Williamsburg County, Georgetown County west of the Intercoastal Waterway, eastern Clarendon County and southern Florence County. It extends from Highway 301 to the Intercoastal Waterway, and from the Pee Dee River to the Santee River. There are 40,000 members scattered over 5,000 miles of line in the four-county area. The Cooperative headquarters is located in Kingstree, but branch offices are located in Manning, Lake City, Hemingway, and Georgetown.

Mission Statement

To provide quality service and products to meet the energy needs of our members at a competitive price consistent with sound business practices, while enhancing the quality of life in our service area through the support of economic, civic and educational opportunities.
