Judge clears way for $22-a-month reduction in SC power bills | The State

COLUMBIA, S.C.
Power bills will fall for some 727,000-plus S.C. electric customers starting this month after a federal judge allowed a temporary rate cut to take effect Tuesday, scoring a major victory for S.C. lawmakers and ratepayers.

U.S. District Court Judge Michelle Childs on Monday denied SCE&G’s motion for a preliminary injunction to block a new state law, forcing the utility to cut its customers’ rates, from going into effect.

Childs ruled SCE&G was unlikely to win its lawsuit to block the new law and was not entitled to money it has collected since it abandoned construction of two new nuclear reactors in Fairfield County in July 2017.
