The company's history dates back to 1846 when local business leaders came together to form the Charleston Gas Light Company. Their business was the manufacture of gas from coal, oil and resins. In the spring of 1848, the first gas streetlights appeared. And by the end of the year, 485 customers were taking advantage of this newest luxury. Six years later and a hundred miles to the north, the Columbia Gas Light Company was formed. By the end of 1888, there were gas mains on every principal street in the capital city.
SCANA was formed by the merger of Carolina Energies with South Carolina Electric & Gas Company in 1982 and incorporated in 1984.
