The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Approves S.C. Reactors

On Friday, Scana Corp. received approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission by a 4-1 vote for the construction and operation of two units at a plant 26 miles northwest of Columbia.  The Chairman of the Commission dissented, citing pending safety rules in response to the nuclear disaster at Fukishima Dai-lchi in Japan last year.  This approval comes on the heels of the Commission’s February 9 approval for two reactors to be constructed by the Southern Co. in Augusta, Georgia.  Find out more about this decision by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission here.
