Palmetto Promise

In 2013, construction began on two nuclear reactors that would be added to the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County, with the costs to be shared by South Carolina energy companies SCANA and Santee Cooper. The project was scrapped in July 2017, after gross mismanagement led to $9 billion being spent and neither reactor being remotely close to completion.

Costs for this failed project are now causing electricity bills around the state to go up.
