SCANA offers abandoned V.C. Summer nuclear site to Santee Cooper

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - SCANA has proposed handing over the V.C. Summer nuclear site to Santee Cooper so the project can be preserved and perhaps finished later.

The decision comes more than four months after the more than $9 billion project was suddenly abandoned, leaving thousands without a job.

Eric Boomhower, director of public affairs at SCANA, sent the following statement, saying:

As partners in the new nuclear project, SCE&G and Santee Cooper have had discussions regarding a variety of issues relating to an orderly winding down of activity at the construction site.
