Central has no direct generation ownership; the cooperative designs and builds transmission lines between the bulk transmission system and member delivery points.
Central purchases the majority of its power from Duke Energy Carolinas and the South Carolina Public Service Authority through a long term contract. The remaining power supply needs are met with power purchased from the Southeastern Power Administration and from South Carolina Electric and Gas Company.
