Why a Children’s Book?
For more than 75 years, the electric cooperatives in South Carolina have been transforming lives, families and communities with electricity and community support. We want to celebrate t hat outstanding history with an opportunity for young people to understand what a cooperative is, how they started and how electricity impacts our lives. The electric cooperatives in South Carolina value education and and realize students are the problem solvers of the future. Becoming an energy-literate society is essential to overcoming the challenges of our future. This opportunity allows students to widen their knowledge of our state’s energy past and points them to thinking about the future.
