Santee Cooper provided hands-on experience in critical fields of the energy industry such as power generation and the development and use of renewable energy to a Kershaw County educator this summer as part of the 26th annual Energy Educators Institute series at the Wampee Conference Center in Pinopolis. “Through this program, I have gained a greater understanding of the importance of Santee Cooper in South Carolina,” said Chet Horton, director of the Applied Technology Education Campus. “Santee Cooper brings industry to the state to drive our economy, offers programs like this one to educate our students and our community, maintains our ecosystem and natural resources and provides job opportunities that will be beneficial to our students in the future.”
