V.C. Summer Nuclear Project Scandal

Since 2009, the SCE&G customers paid higher energy bills to finance two new nuclear units in Jenkinsville, at the V.C. Summer site. Since the company announced that they couldn’t finish the project and abandoned the construction in 2017, a lot of angry customers have requested a refund.

Dominion Energy acquired SCANA corporation, and, consequently, SCE&G in January 2019. According to the small claims court settlement, Dominion Energy had to send refund checks to customers who funded the project through bills. They started issuing refunds in August 2019.

The first round of chargebacks required Dominion Energy to pay back over $60 million dollars, while the total amount that needed to be refunded, according to the settlement, was over $140 million. The majority of customers received less than $100. Some clients who paid more each month had to receive at least $100, and only one customer received a refund of one million dollars.

Some customers chose to get a rate credit and have their electricity bills reduced instead of receiving a check with refund money.

Before the abandonment of the project and multiple lawsuits, SCE&G earned more than two million dollars from customers’ increased bills, which explains the anger and disappointment of the customers once the project was dropped.
