STOP THIS RATEPAYER ABUSE!
This Tuesday (April 25th ) shortly after lunch, 7 House members will vote on a bill to make changes to a law that has allowed SCE&G to make a profit on $2.5 billion in cost overruns in the construction of two nuclear plants in Fairfield County. This perverse incentive for going over budget and 2-3 years behind schedule in nuclear plant construction has resulted in 9 rate hikes since 2009 totaling about a 20% increase in electric rates just to pay for construction financing costs. Electric co-op customers have also seen increases.
The law, the Base Load Review Act, must be changed to protect future Duke Energy, SCE&G and C0-OP ratepayers across the state.
Contact the members below with the following message TODAY:
“Vote YES on H.4022. Make utility companies accountable when building future nuclear plants so that they are not rewarded for bad management and construction decisions.”
