Economic Development

Palmetto Electric has taken a leadership role in fostering economic development and progress for South Carolina’s Lowcountry. We work hand-in-hand with local economic development groups in Jasper, Hampton and Beaufort counties, as well as statewide groups like the Palmetto Economic Development Corporation.Examples of our efforts are the Jasper County Development Board’s opening of Cypress Ridge Business and Industrial Park and Buckwalter, a master planned development in Beaufort County.

Palmetto representatives take an active role in attracting new industries to our area. We take this role very seriously, because we know that new industry means new jobs, and new jobs mean greater prosperity and better quality of life for our friends and neighbors.
