Business of the Month

York Electric Cooperative

GYCC President, Grier Sandifer presents the November Award to Paul Basha, President & CEO, YEC 


    Founded in March 1941, York Electric Cooperative, Inc. (YEC) is the creation of a group of 533 York County farmers and business people who decided it was time to bring electric power to their rural communities. In some ways, the cooperative has remained very much what it was then: a private, not-for-profit company owned by the people it serves dedicated to providing dependable and affordable electric power to homes, farms and businesses.

     In other ways, YEC has changed tremendously.  The cooperative has grown to more than 48,000 active accounts, 3,500 miles of power line and 25 substations. It services residential, commercial and large industrial accounts throughout York, Lancaster, Chester and Cherokee counties and has become an active and vital part of our community and its economic development, establishing the 465– acre East York Industrial Park in 1989.

    YEC has fostered economic-development affiliations with a number of public-and private-sector agencies-among them the York County Economic Development Board, Charlotte Regional Partnership, South Carolina Power Team, I-77 Alliance, area municipalities and local chambers of commerce. Through these partnerships, YEC will continue to work to make the areas it serves a vital and thriving presence attractive to business and industry.

    We often say, “Good things happen when people work in cooperation.” YEC is invested in the community because their employees, Board, and member-owners are all from the areas they serve. Underpinning the cooperative’s mission, now and in the future, is their alliance with Touchstone Energy, with its emphasis on community commitment, integrity, accountability and innovation. It means that YEC is a partner to our businesses, industries and residents, determined to provide the electric services needed at the highest level possible: what is best for the community is best for YEC as well.

Chamber Offers Web Advertising


   The Greater York Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce three new website advertising strategies to help increase its members brand recognition in the online marketplace.
   With over 3,300 page views and more than 1,800 visitors to the GYCC website in August 2012, advertising on the Chamber’s website increases viewers’ knowledge of what Chamber Members have to offer.
   The Chamber is introducing three levels of web advertising. The premier level advertiser appears on the GYCC homepage rotating every 10 seconds with three other advertisers. The ad will be designed and customized for each advertiser.
   The second opportunity allows members to advertise in the online business directory next to their membership listing with a 2” x 3” space perfect for a business card.
   The third opportunity places a company logo in the online business directory.
