In the July 3 meeting of the of the Public Service Commission, Friends of the Earth and to the Sierra Club requested access to documents regarding the failed nuclear construction project that SCANA has withheld and kept secret from the public.
The two conservation groups want access to the documents in order to challenge SCANA’s claims as it seeks to continue charging customers for the doomed project.
There is much distrust of corporations. Our Public Service Commission must be an oversight body that speaks for the people it represents.
I’m appreciative of Friends of the Earth and the Sierra Club for holding SCANA responsible on behalf of South Carolinians. Let’s hope SCANA and its stockholders recognize this failed project as an opportunity to become a leader in the field of socially conscious businesses and work to create better community.
The State publishes a cross section of the letters we receive from South Carolinians in order to provide a forum for our community and also to allow our community to get a good look at itself, for good or bad. The letters represent the views of the letter writers, not necessarily of The State.
