On Monday, Santee Cooper and South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) abandoned the over-budget V.C. Summer project that has already cost $9 billion. Some of that money was raised by SCE&G on the backs of ratepayers, enabled by a 2007 act by the General Assembly.

MY TURN: Blueprint for a brighter future

By Mike Couick | During the past few months, I have gotten to know some of the brightest young minds at the University of South Carolina, and the experience has inspired me to take a very optimistic view of our energy future.
