    Project Good Neighbor

    Since 1993, our customers and staff have donated over $1,000,000 to Project Good Neighbor. This program, administered by the local charity CCMO, provides funds for those in termporary need of heating fuel, wood, electricity, etc... during the cold winter months. If you have not signed up for this very worthwhile charitable effort, please see one of our friendly customer service representatives or call (803) 268-4000.

Pardon Our Progress

Beginning December 5th, the Department of Public Utilities will begin our Natural Gas expansion project for the Town of Elloree. This project is a collaboration between The City of Elloree and The City of Orangeburg's Department of Public Utilities. Our goal is to have natural gas available to many of the residents and the businesses in Elloree by late Spring, early Summer 2017. For residents in this area, please call our Natural Gas Division at (803) 268-4304 to find out if this opportunity will be available upon completion of the project.


“Please be advised, beginning January 1, 2017, the DPU will no longer accept payroll and other third party checks for utility payment.  Thanks for your understanding in this matter.”
