ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - The South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce is holding a town hall meeting Monday.
State leaders have been looking at selling the state-owned utility Santee Cooper and they’re requesting the input of citizens. Santee Cooper has more than $8 million in debt. Most of that debt came from the failed V.C. Summer project. However, there is a big concerned about how much of that debt should fall on customers.
A spokesperson with Santee Cooper said the utility plans to recoup the debt through rate increases starting in 2021.
The town hall meeting is set to take place at 5 p.m. at the Orangeburg County Library on Louis Street.
