Are Horry Electric’s employees directly involved in power restoration?

All of Horry Electric’s full-time and part-time employees are involved, in one way or another, in the restoration process. The most visible are the linemen, who are the individuals trained in the construction and maintenance of power lines.

In addition, we have crews from sister cooperatives in South Carolina and all across the country who can come in and assist. Contract crews, our own and those who work with other cooperatives, are also called in to help with the restoration process.

Everyone goes on standby on high alert to provide assistance as quickly as possible after the storm. Being on alert and prepared enables us to instantly get to work once the high winds or inclement weather subsides.
