Who We Are

Owned by Members logo

Broad River Electric Cooperative is one of 20 not-for-profit, member-owned electric co-ops in South Carolina. From our headquarters in Gaffney, SC, we serve Cherokee, Spartanburg, Union, and Newberry 

counties in South Carolina and portions of Cleveland, Polk, and Rutherford counties in North Carolina.

Founded in 1940 to meet the needs of a small number of rural residents who needed electric service, we now have more than 20,000 business and residential Member-Owners and 2,348 miles of power line.

Our mission also encompasses the Seven Cooperative Principles and the four Touchstone Energy values: accountability, integrity, innovation, and commitment to community. You'll find that much of what we do—whether it's doing business with you or  doing work to better our community—have these values at their core. 

Questions? Call or Email.

Board of Trustees

Members of the Board of Trustees are elected by the membership at the cooperative's Annual Meeting on the first Saturday in May. Each serves three year terms.
