Santee Cooper is a one-third owner of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Generating Station in Jenkinsville, S.C.
Our partner, SCE&G, has produced a stellar operating and safety record since the plant came online in 1983, and we have partnered with them again in building two new units at the Summer station. Santee Cooper will own 40 percent of the new units, which are scheduled to come online in 2019 and 2020.
Nuclear power is an essential component to diversifying our baseload generation mix. Nuclear power is emissions free and a proven source of reliable power, and it features low operating costs.
