COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) – A settlement may be on the way in the massive class-action ratepayer lawsuit against Santee Cooper.
According to The State newspaper, the judge who is overseeing the lawsuit stopped proceedings after a settlement was reached.
The major defendants, which include Santee Cooper and Dominion Energy – who took over SCE&G – have agreed to pay ratepayers $520 million.
That case is centered on how much the state-owned utility should repay its customers for the abandoned nuclear reactor project north of Columbia.
You are still paying for that project every month.
