Stay safe. Stay Home.
Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s management team has been monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak for several weeks and has been taking steps in accordance with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to protect the health of our community. The World Health Organization declared on Wednesday, March 11, the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, which is declared when a new disease for which people do not have immunity spreads worldwide beyond expectations.
For the health and safety of our members and employees, Berkeley Electric Cooperative has closed all district office lobbies until further notice. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you, however, drive-thru services, automated phone payments (1-877-853-6731) and 24-hour kiosks will remain open at this time. Members can also pay by electronic check, bank draft or through our free Smarthub app.
PLEASE NOTE - Our Awendaw office is closed to all member traffic, including the drive-thru. Additionally, we have suspended all disconnects and late payment fees until further notice. However, we urge our members to monitor their electricity use and their monthly bill. Please remember you will still be responsible to pay for the electricity you use. Be sure to reach out to our member services team for help if you are in a financial crisis. We are here to help and appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we navigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
