When the SCANA/Santee Cooper project to expand the V.C. Summer nuclear station whimpered to an end last summer, it left a $9 billion hole in the ground.

But there’s a larger crater. That’s the huge gap in knowledge among Palmetto State citizens about Santee Cooper.

To fill this knowledge gap, Palmetto Promise Institute developed “The Santee Cooper Quiz.” This interactive, online question and answer site rolled out earlier this week along with a statewide publicity campaign.

The goal? To raise awareness of Santee Cooper (the South Carolina Public Service Authority), and the impact of the mothballing of reactors 2 and 3 at V.C. Summer on real people and real businesses.

Because you are reading these words right now, that’s proof you are well-informed.

But can you “ace” The Santee Cooper Quiz?

Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

For the complete body of Palmetto Promise research on V.C. Summer, you will want to visit our Santee Cooper Resource Center. New research is being added weekly, including this excellent article by two Upstate members of the General Assembly.
