Santee Cooper accuses SCE&G of civil fraud in failed, $9 billion nuclear project

In 2011, the two utilities, which together provide electricity to millions of South Carolinians, signed an agreement giving SCE&G authority to oversee all aspects of construction at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County.

But SCE&G broke that agreement with “various fraudulent acts,” including “dishonesty, bad faith, unfair dealing and the unlawful appropriation of Santee Cooper’s money by design,” Santee Cooper wrote this week in a legal filing in state court.
