We were the first utility in South Carolina to install scrubbers, which remove SO2. Today Santee Cooper removes 90 percent or better of the primary EPA-targeted emissions on our main generating units, and our newest units remove close to 95 percent.
Santee Cooper takes environmental stewardship seriously. We have installed state-of-the-art equipment on new coal-fired generation, and we've updated older equipment. We helped fund clean-coal technology that is ongoing at the University of South Carolina. We are flexible enough to navigate this rocky regulatory landscape, although these regulations are driving up costs for our customers.
