Horry Electric Cooperative’s new outage text alert program – MyOutage – provides a convenient way to stay connected during a power outage. Using the everyday accessibility of text messaging, we can quickly and easily communicate about power outages.

How to Participate

Participating is easy! All you have to do is simply list your mobile number(s) on your Horry Electric accounts, then text MYOUTAGE to 1-844-369-2767. You’ll want to save this number to your contacts so you can quickly report your outage when necessary. (PLEASE NOTE: Standard text and data rates may apply)

Stopping Service

We are committed to making sure that you only receive text messages that you have requested. To stop receiving outage text messages, text QUIT to 1-844-369-2767. (PLEASE NOTE: Stopping the outage text notifications will not unsubscribe you from daily account text messages)
