Horry Electric is working hard to encourage members to go paperless and sign up for E-Bill with a limited time offer to new participants.  “A member who qualifies and successfully signs up as an E-Bill participant between July 1 and 11:59 PM on July 31, 2020, will be automatically entered into a prize drawing for one of ten $50 electric bill credits,” says Danny Shelley, executive vice president and CEO.   The bill credits will be awarded to the winning entrants on Monday, August 3, 2020.   Contest rules are outlined at the bottom of this blog post.

Signing up for E-bill makes paying your electric bill easier. “This means no more trips to your mailbox for your electric bill,” says Shelley. “It’s a green, easy, secure and convenient way to receive your bill.”

When a member signs up, Horry Electric will begin automatically sending your monthly electric bill to the email address associated with your account.

The limited-time offer is for NEW participants only. All member accounts are eligible to participate.  The contest rules are outlined below.
