Business Retention and Expansion

Business Retention and Expansion

We want to make expansion and investment at your facility more achievable. Contact us today to arrange a visit to your company or to share your growth plan with us.

For more than 30 years, SC Power Team’s business retention and expansion (BRE) program has fulfilled our founders’ directive to make existing industrial and distribution members a top priority.

Our full BRE program is centered on creating partnerships that reinforce member service and success, as we strive each year to visit as many companies as possible throughout South Carolina’s electric cooperative service areas. These on-site visits, along with additional communications, provide vital information on the resources and incentives businesses need to succeed, and expand, in South Carolina.

Business expansions continue to be a viable part of the South Carolina economy. SC Power Team and the 20 electric cooperatives are committed to being a strong utility partner to those we serve.

How SC Power Team Helps

Expansion Consultations & Existing Industry Incentives

Industrial and distribution members within South Carolina’s electric cooperative service area – who are considering a major capital investment in new building space or new equipment – are potentially eligible for economic development incentives similar to those received by companies who relocate to South Carolina from out-of-state.

South Carolina Power Team’s unique resources, such as the Cooperative Recruitment and Expansion Fund (CoRE) and affordable, incentive electric rates, are also available for companies considering expansion in South Carolina in our electric service area.
