Hurricane Preparedness Conference powered using green power

Myrtle Beach, SC -

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) —The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce has purchased renewable Green Power from Santee Cooper to meet the energy needs for the chamber's 5th Annual Hurricane Preparedness Conference on June 7.  

The conference begins at 8 a.m. and will last through mid-afternoon at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel. 

The conference will focus on preparing yourself, your family and your home for a hurricane.  It will also go into details of what to expect immediately after a hurricane and an outlook update for the 2010 season.

"As the state's leader in renewable energy, Santee Cooper wants to continue expanding our Green Power program through innovative projects such as this one with the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce and its Hurricane Preparedness Conference," Santee Cooper Vice President of conservation and renewable energy Marc Tye said. "As always, the revenues from the chamber's Green Power purchase will be fully reinvested in new or expanded Green Power generation by Santee Cooper. This is an investment that keeps on generating returns."

Santee Cooper generates 22 megawatts of renewable Green Power from clean, renewable energy sources including landfill biogas and solar power.

Santee Cooper is South Carolina's state-owned electric and water utility, and the state's largest power producer that is the source of energy for two million South Carolinians.
