SOUTH CAROLINA, August 2, 2017 - South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) will cease construction on the two new nuclear units at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Jenkinsville, SCE&G, a principal subsidiary of SCANA Corporation, said it plans to file a petition with the Public Service Commission of South Carolina seeking approval of its abandonment plan. This decision was reached after considering the additional costs to complete the units. SCE&G concluded that it would not be in the best interest of its customers and other stakeholders to continue construction. Following the bankruptcy filing of Westinghouse Electric Company LLC (WEC), SCE&G and Santee Cooper each began a comprehensive process of evaluating the most prudent path forward for the units.
