Economic Dev.

BROAD RIVER ELECTRIC is proud to be an integral part of commerce and economic development in this area. Not only do we deliver reliable electrical service at an affordable rate, but we are also an active participant in attracting and retaining local businesses and industry to the local economy. In addition to providing energy to nearly 1,000 commercial and industry accounts, Broad River has been crucial in the development of 13 industrial sites throughout Cherokee and Union County.


SC Power TeamOne of our crucial partners in these efforts is the South Carolina Power Team. The South Carolina Power Team is the economic development group for the state’s electric cooperatives – including Broad River Electric. They exist to help new industrial/distribution facilities locate in Broad River Electric’s territory and to help existing industries in the territory – you – expand. Their confidential, consultative services are free to members – a value added courtesy of your co-op.  Call them for assistance any time, particularly when one of the following applies to your facility:

  • You Are Expanding
  • Your Company is Consolidating Operations
  • You’d Like A Key Supplier to Be Closer to You
  • You Are Making A Major Capital Investment or You Need Access to Capital
  • You Need Assistance Outside of Electric Power (Process Improvement, Regulatory Issues, Waste Mgmt. Issues, Workforce Training, etc.)
  • You Need Assistance in General
  • You May Be Closing

Your contact at the Power Team for all of the above is Andrew Folks, Director of Business Relations. He can be reached at (803) 254-9211 or
