In 1940, when Horry Electric was incorporated, the methods of communicating with members were limited to personal, one-on-one visits in the field or in the office. Telephone service was limited and postal service was the only other option.
Thanks to growth in Horry County and advances in technology, our methods of communication have expanded over the years. Print publications, mailed separately or as a bill insert, have proven to be an effective means of communicating with members since the 40s. We’re now able to deliver information electronically.
As social media has grown in popularity, Horry Electric Cooperative has added a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Horry Electric Blog , as well as a presence on YouTube to the mix of communications tools.
