Description: Central Electric Power Cooperative of South Carolina is in the planning stages for a new transmission line that would run 15-20 miles from Winyah Bay to McClellanville to improve electric reliability for Berkeley Electric Cooperative's McClellanville customers. The project also invovles the construction of a new substation in McClellanville.

Berkeley Electric Cooperative, which gets it power through a contract with Central Electric Cooperative from electricity generally provided by Santee Cooper, currently takes electric service from a pole-mounted metering point near McClellanville. The metering point is on a 22-mile-long, 25-kilovolt distribution line owned and operated by South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. From the metering point, Berkeley Electric's distribution line runs another 18 miles. Together, the two utilities' lines run 40 miles, providing service to 1,100 Berkeley Electric customers from Awendaw to outlying areas of McClellanville. The town is served by SCE&G.
