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.”
