Horry Electric, in conjunction with Santee Cooper, is giving you the chance to sign up for South Carolina’s first source of renewable power generation.
What is green power?
Green power is electricity generated by sustainable resources such as solar, wind, and even decomposing garbage in selected landfills. In all cases, green power minimizes harm to the environment. In using the methane emitted by decomposing garbage as fuel for generating power, we can significantly reduce the amount of greenhouse gas that otherwise would go into the atmosphere.
Why is Horry Electric offering this program to its members?
Horry Electric Cooperative and Santee Cooper are working together on the Green Power Program in response to increased customer interest in renewable energy and concern for the environment. By taking this initial step to meet and encourage the growing demand for renewable energy, we can help reduce reliance solely on limited generation resources while improving and preserving the environment for future generations.
How much will my participation in the Green Power Program cost?
Your cost will vary depending on what level you select and will be added to your monthly electric bill.
- Level 1 (100 kwh) $3 per month
- Level 2 (200 kwh) $6 per month
- Level 3 (300 kwh) $9 per month
You can also choose to purchase any number of blocks for $3 each. Your participation will show on your electric bill within one or two months.
