SCANA Corp. and Santee Cooper have amended the Interim Assessment Agreement with Westinghouse Electric Co. LLC concerning the construction project at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station.
The main focus of the amendment was to extend the agreement through June 26. This will allow for evaluations, where South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. (SCE&G), principal subsidiary of SCANA, and V.C. Summer Nuclear Station project co-owner, Santee Cooper, can continue to make progress on the site.
Additionally, Fluor will remain the project’s co-owners and will continue to make weekly payments. The extension will allow the co-owner to have more time to examine its options and use relevant information to assess the best path forward. The involved parties hope to reach a decision that would best meet the needs of both consumers and stakeholders.
SCANA, located in Cayce, manages electric and natural gas utility operations and other energy-related businesses. SCE&G delivers electricity to roughly 713,000 consumers in South Carolina and natural gas to approximately 361,000 consumers. Santee Cooper provides electricity to around 2 million South Carolina consumers.
