The City of Goose Creek formed an electric utility in 2020, following a referendum in 2019.
In the referendum, Goose Creek residents agreed that creating a City-owned electrical utility was the right choice. The utility's area of service includes the Century Aluminum plant at Mount Holly. The referendum passed by nearly 70 percent of the vote in Goose Creek.
The creation of the utility will not change the way Goose Creek residents currently receive their electricity. Initially, the utility will exclusively serve the Century Aluminum plant.
In an editorial earlier this year, State Sen. Paul Campbell and State Rep. Todd Rutherford discussed the benefits of the electric utility's creation.
