Electric co-op membership offers value far beyond affordable, reliable electricity.
Here at York Electric Cooperative we work hard to deliver safe, affordable, and reliable electricity to our 58,000 members every day. But we don’t stop there. Because we’re a cooperative, we strive to do much more, to find ways of providing real value to you and the communities we serve.
So what exactly does real value mean? Well, in some ways it’s basic, like connecting with a real, local person when you call our office, rather than just a recording. It could be finding a copy of South Carolina Living magazine in your mailbox every month, which keeps you informed about co-op business and goings-on in the Palmetto state. Or maybe you participated in YEC’s Member Appreciation Shred Day event on October 5, 2013 which provided a safe and secure way for our members to properly dispose of any confidential and personal documents. It could mean that you got your lights back on more quickly after a major storm thanks to mutual-aid agreements that bring line crews in from other co-ops to help us restore power and perhaps you recently used your Co-op Connections Card to receive discounts at local businesses and national retailers which is also a tangible benefit of being a York Electric member.
October marks National Cooperative Month, when we take time to celebrate co-ops and talk about why our not-for-profit, consumer-owned business model is special. Offering our members real value – and working to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve – is just one way we set ourselves apart. We want you to continue to stay involved as we build a better future together. Find out more about YOUR cooperative
