Email these legislators before tomorrow morning
Yesterday a House subcommittee voted to pass H.4022 onto the full Labor, Commerce and Industry Committee. That committee will meet tomorrow morning at 9 to take action on H.4022.
H.4022 would change the 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.
H.4022 would change the Base Load Review Act to protect future Duke Energy, SCE&G and C0-OP ratepayers across the state should another nuclear plant be built.
Contact the members below with the following message:
“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.”
