Governance and Accountability
We are organized as a trade association under IRS code section 501(c)(6) and are known as The Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina, Inc. (ECSC).
Each member organization is represented by two representatives on the ECSC Board of Trustees. The board meets six times per year, and an Executive Committee of the board meets in alternate months.
As do similarly organized entities, ECSC completes an IRS Form 990 each year that lists its expenditures. ECSC also further compiles its expenditures to comply with Act 56, a law passed in 2019 by the S.C. General Assembly that addresses governance of electric cooperatives. We also have provided our 2019 ECSC Disclosure as required by law.
