Judge rules against SCE&G in ratepayer nuclear lawsuits | The State

While SCE&G and its junior partner in the nuclear project, the state-owned Santee Cooper utility, abandoned it on July 31, SCE&G has said it will continue to bill its customers for the project’s cost.

Hayes did not rule on motions by the suing ratepayers asking him to set aside ratepayers’ monthly payments and give them to a custodian, called a “receiver.” A receiver would hold the money in trust until the issues in the lawsuits are decided.

Some 20 lawsuits have been filed against SCE&G in state and federal courts over the nuclear debacle.
