Late Friday afternoon, Horry Electric was contacted to take part in a story being put together by Brandon Herring of WMBFNews. The focus was on tools various utilities have available for consumers that can help them cut costs. They were particularly interested in MyUsage.com and spoke with Eddy Blackburn, marketing analyst for Horry Electric via telephone.
“People are more conscious of what they’re using and it has helped them lower their use somewhat,” Blackburn explained during the interview with Herring about the valuable energy tool available to members of Horry Electric.
The story aired Friday night and then again on Saturday. “We already have nearly 1800 members taking advantage of MyUsage.com and we hope even more will sign up as a result of this news story,” says Penelope Hinson, manager of public relations, marketing and energy management for the Cooperative.
