Myrtle Beach Travel Park in Myrtle Beach, S.C., announced that it has partnered with Santee Cooper in an initiative to reduce energy consumption through Santee Cooper’s Reduce the Use Program, according to a news release.

Associate Engineer Timothy Vereen presented Myrtle Beach Travel Park with an $8,500 rebate check on Dec. 9 for the park’s participation in Santee Cooper’s Reduce the Use Commercial Custom Rebate program. By installing variable frequency drives on two lazy river motors, Myrtle Beach Travel Park will reduce its energy consumption by 178,272 kWh and demand by 34.2 kW annually.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park is an oceanfront campground with just under 1,200 sites in Myrtle Beach. The campground sits on a half mile of beach and is open all year. They offer activities for all ages, worship services, three pools, a lazy river, lake, camp store and many more great amenities. Myrtle Beach Travel Park is committed to the industry and their guests as well as being a good steward of the environment. The campground takes the time to offer new programs, buildings, and amenities to keep on the cutting edge.
