The Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in connection with SCANA’s nuclear debacle at V.C. Summer. The hearing will give citizens an opportunity to weigh in as to whether ratepayers should continue to bear the burden of paying for the now-failed multibillion-dollar nuclear reactor construction project in Fairfield County. “The decision that the PSC will make on the issue of who pays for the abandoned nuclear project will affect rates for decades to come,” says Frank Knapp, president and CEO of the SC Small Business Chamber of Commerce, a longtime local watchdog on utility issues. “Our position is that SCE&G rates should be rolled back by 18 percent and the $2 billion the customers have already paid should be clawed back.” — Chris Trainor
