Who we are

Edisto Electric Cooperative, Inc., your Touchstone Energy® Partner, is a member-owned rural electric cooperative headquartered in Bamberg, South Carolina.  Founded in 1939, the co-op provides service to residential, commercial and industrial consumers in Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Berkeley, Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton and Orangeburg Counties.  We give the power to light homes and brighten the streets; to warm long winter nights and cool hot summer days; to open retail doors and turn the cogs of commerce.  If you are one of the thousands with whom we serve and touch your life every day, take a look at how you can get more from your cooperative membership.

Although our members receive electricity at the lowest possible cost, this is not the only benefit of cooperative membership.  Members may participate in innovative programs and services tailored to meet their needs.  Our members have a voice in how the cooperative is operated.  Our governing body, the board of trustees, is composed of members who are elected by other members.

Our programs reflect a spirit of cooperation forged through more than half a century of partnership with our members.  It is a way of doing business that sets us apart from other utilities and it is the foundation for our continued growth and success.  From the smallest rural home to the largest industrial facility, our members are the first, last, and only reason we’re in business.
