If you were an electricity customer of SCE&G and were charged costs for the construction of 2 nuclear plants in Jenkinsville, you may be eligible for a payment from a class action settlement.
This website may affect your rights, so please read it carefully.
A settlement has been reached with Defendants South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (“SCE&G”) and SCANA Corporation (“SCANA”) (collectively “Defendants”) concerning the construction of two nuclear units at the V.C. Summer site in Jenkinsville, South Carolina (the “Project”), for which SCE&G customers paid costs through their electric bills. The lawsuit was filed following the announcement by Defendants of their intention to abandon the construction of the Project, which had been ongoing and financed by SCE&G customers since 2009. Plaintiffs allege, among other things, that Defendants breached various duties in the construction of the Project and improperly charged Plaintiffs advanced financing costs. Defendants deny the allegations in the lawsuit, but have agreed to settle.
This website advises you of your rights with respect to the proposed Settlement, including your right to receive an automatic payment (or, for current SCE&G customers, a bill credit), your right to exclude yourself from the settlement, and your right to object to the settlement.
These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained on this website. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the Claims Administrator by phone at 1-877-432-3808, or by email at email@example.com. You may also consult with your own attorney.
Please do not call the Judge, Clerk, or Court about this website, the Notice or lawsuit. They will not be able to give you advice or answer your questions.
