Customer Assistance

For a number of months, Governor McMaster had asked all utilities to suspend disconnections and late fees due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  That executive order expired on June 15 and disconnection for non-payment of accounts will resume on July 13 unless you have made some type of arrangement for payment.  Click here for a list of help agencies that can assist you in paying your utility bill.

Billing and Payments

Our offices are closed to walk-in service. Our drive-in windows will remain open at this time for monetary transactions.  You can also pay your bill online, though our mobile app or by phone through our Express Payment Line at 864-898-2008 or speak with a member service representative at 800-240-3400.
