South Central Power's history with the City of Lancaster extends back to when the cooperative was created, some 80 years ago. Although we are presently located north of the City, our original office was in downtown Lancaster and after 50+ years we are excited to be returning to the City.
Our decision to combine our three central Ohio offices into a single location required an assessment of over 20 sites along Highway 33. Our site selection process continued to bring us back to Lancaster where we are proud to become an even larger part of the community. The site was served by all the necessary utilities and the immediate access to a four-lane highway is critical to serve our central Ohio members.
The City's leadership, overall quality of life, low cost of living, new schools, and modern medical facilities were all factors in our decision. Lancaster has it all – from a thriving downtown with great restaurants and amenities, to centers for advanced manufacturing and everything in between. We believe this location will also be pivotal for us as we continue to grow and recruit our next generation or workers.
