VC Summer Units 2 & 3

(1/3) > >>

South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) submitted to obtain a combined license (COL) for two Westinghouse Advanced Passive 1000 (AP1000) pressurized-water reactors (PWRs) designated as Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 & 3.

On March 27, 2008, South Carolina Electric & Gas applied to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for a Combined Construction and Operating License (COL) to build two 1,100 MW AP1000 pressurized water reactors at the site. On May 27, 2008, SCE&G and Santee Cooper announced an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract had been reached with Westinghouse. Costs are estimated to be approximately $9.8 billion for both AP1000 units, plus transmission facility and financing costs. The operators are filing an application to increase customers bills by $1.2 billion (2.5%) during the construction period to partially finance capital costs. Presuming that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issues the construction licenses in 2011, SCE&G plans to bring the first of the new units online in 2016, with the second in 2019.
