Columbia, S.C., Feb. 4, 2004 - A Web site offering more than 6,000 pages of information to assist small businesses is now available on SCE&G's Web site at www.sbrc.sceg.com.
SCE&G launched the Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) on its Web site Feb. 1. The site provides information on everything from human resources to marketing, the latest business news, reference libraries and more.
In addition to the SBRC, SCE&G business and commercial customers also now have 24-hour access to their account information. Businesses can review account listings, payment information, consumption detail, rate detail and other information by signing in at www.sceg.com
Another new service SCE&G is offering is a customer service line designated specifically for businesses and commercial customers. If businesses or commercial customers have questions about their accounts, they can call (866) 543-7234 during normal business hours.
"Small businesses make up a significant portion of our business. In fact, we have more than 60,000 small business customers on our system," said Barry Timmerman, manager of Marketing for SCE&G.
"With a number that large, it's impossible to provide each business with an assigned account representative, like we do with our large customers. But we believe the combination of things we’re doing should help small businesses manage their accounts better and provide them with information that can assist them in their day-to-day operations."
SCE&G is engaged in the generation, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity to over 550,000 customers in 24 counties in central, southern and southwestern South Carolina. The company also provides natural gas service to approximately 270,000 customers in 33 counties in the state. For more information, visit our website at www.sceg.com.
