“Electrifying” science activities at Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting
Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting was Saturday at the Ladson Fairgrounds from 8:00am-2:00pm.
Kids of all ages got to crash a car with our Motion Commotion distracted driving activity, shoot paper rockets, and learn about electricity with our Snap Circuits! All activities were led by 4-H Youth Science Team members from across the state.
According to the cooperative’s website, Berkeley Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric utility which serves its members in accordance with the 7 Cooperative Principles. This was a special year for the cooperative, as they were celebrating 75 years of service to the people of Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.
Starting from humble beginnings, the cooperative began with eight employees to electrify rural America for their 184 members. Today, the cooperative has 85,000 member accounts in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester with over 5,000 miles of line laid, making this cooperative the largest in South Carolina.
