Here at Lynches River Electric Cooperative, we work hard to deliver safe, affordable, and reliable electricity to our 15,000 plus 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 in your mailbox and Current Report in your bill. Both publications keep you informed about co-op business and goings-on in South Carolina. Or it's getting the lights back on more quickly after a major weather event, thanks to mutual-aid agreements that bring line crew in from other co-ops to help us restore power.
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.
