Commentary: Don’t give Dominion and Santee Cooper another blank check for a megaproject

One morning in late 2017, thousands of workers arrived at the V.C. Summer construction site to find that SCE&G (now Dominion Energy) and Santee Cooper had locked the gates and canceled the project. They were out of work without the courtesy of an email or a phone call.

South Carolinians soon discovered these utilities had squandered $9 billion in one of the worst utility failures in the nation’s history, while illegally hiding the project’s problems from regulators and lawmakers. Utility executives were indicted and went to prison while ratepayers were left holding the bag. Even now, South Carolinians pay some of the highest energy bills in the country due in part to this catastrophic failure.

The Legislature wisely responded with major energy reforms from 2018 to 2022.

Fast-forward to 2024, when state leaders now proclaim that our energy grid is at a “crisis point.”

In response, Dominion and Santee Cooper say they have the solution to the energy crisis that they helped to create.

What could their brilliant idea be?

Fast-tracking, once again, a risky and expensive utility megaproject.

Essentially, the same utilities whose greed and incompetence cost 5,000 South Carolinians their jobs, and the same utilities that fleeced ratepayers to the tune of $9 billion, are now asking for a sweetheart deal for another project that is the same size as the failed V.C. Summer project.

Dominion and Santee Cooper are pressing lawmakers to essentially direct the Public Service Commission — the PSC, our state’s energy regulator — to approve a 2,000-megawatt natural gas plant on the Edisto River in Canadys.

Why is this problematic? For starters, an independent consultant to the PSC concluded that the utilities had not considered cleaner and cheaper alternatives. Instead, they picked a big, expensive project that will make Dominion’s shareholders more money.

The consultant confirmed the utilities were relying on predetermined conclusions and instead recommended the utilities consider other options, such as solar and energy storage and smaller plants at lower costs. In fact, there are current or abandoned generation sites across the state that have available transmission and leverage federal tax incentives. But none of these alternatives make as much profit for utility shareholders, so the utilities are fighting tooth and nail to get a blank check for this expensive and risky megaproject in Canadys.

But the problematic issues go beyond the cost. Dominion and Santee Cooper can’t or won’t reveal how they’re going to get the natural gas pipelines or energy transmission lines to their proposed Canadys site. There’s no information on how much these lines would cost, where they would go or how much environmental destruction they would cause. What we do know, however, is that the utilities are asking lawmakers to make it easier for them to use eminent domain to condemn and take land from you and me.

Keep an eye on your bank accounts and on your land, because the utilities are coming for both.

And the unbelievable part of all of this? Lawmakers are actually considering giving the utilities what they want. Why? Because lawmakers haven’t yet heard from voters, like you, that this is a bad idea.

South Carolina cannot and should not give Dominion and Santee Cooper another blank check that would cause untold increases in energy bills and massive environmental destruction. Visit palmettopowergamble.com and call or email your lawmakers today and ask them to hold these utilities accountable.

John Tynan is the president of Conservation Voters of South Carolina.

SANTEE, S.C. (WIS) - A fire on Christmas night destroyed a popular barbeque restaurant in Santee.

Crews were called out to The Lone Star BBQ and Mercantile on State Park Road Monday night.

The entire restaurant was in flames, and it took hours to put out the fire.

The Lone Star BBQ and Mercantile has been a historical landmark in Santee since 1883.

″All I can think about is the memories that we’ve made here,” said Rachel Henderson, the owner of the restaurant.

Henderson took over the restaurant in 2020 after its previous owner of 22 years looked for a potential buyer.

”They kept talking and talking, and I said I’ll come work for you for three months. And, I came here and worked for them for three months and I fell in love with it,” said Henderson.

The oldest building was built in 1883, and the youngest building was built 100 years ago after being moved to Santee from Lone Star, South Carolina.

The restaurant had military memorabilia and served home-cooked Southern meals. Customers from across the country, as far as New York and Canada, would gather there for entertainment events, catering events and so much more.

On Tuesday, people stopped to take pictures and video of the damage.

Henderson expressed her emotion detailing the rich history of the restaurant she said cannot be replaced.

“There’s no way to replace what was here. All we can do is… you know… of course we want to come back. Of course we want to reopen and have another business. But it’s just so sad because you can’t replace its history. You just can’t replace it,” Henderson stated.

Henderson told WIS News 10 that she’s heard from the Orangeburg Fire Chief that the cause of the fire was due to faulty wiring.

We’ve contacted the Orangeburg County Fire District and have not heard back.

Henderson stated there are currently no future plans for the restaurant.

Current technologies and management, agronomics, insect thresholds, economics and other topics are on the agenda for the South Carolina Corn and Soybean Growers Annual Meeting on Dec. 14 in Santee.

Registration and a trade show begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Santee Convention Center, 1737 Bass Drive, Santee, South Carolina 29142. Michael Plumblee, Clemson Cooperative Extension Service corn and soybean specialist, said the meeting is geared toward farmers, but input suppliers will benefit as well.

“The agenda for this year’s meeting covers a variety of topics corn and soybean growers will find useful as they prepare for next year’s crops,” Plumblee said. “We encourage everyone to come and learn how they can grow more profitable crops.”

The meeting starts off with a welcome by Dean Hutto, chairman of the South Carolina Soybean Board, followed by updates from the South Carolina Soybean Board and the South Carolina Corn and Soybean Association by Mary Catherine Cromley, executive director.

The featured speaker is Kenneth Hellevang, a North Dakota State University Extension engineer and professor, who will talk about current technologies used for corn and soybean drying and storage.

Hellevang is an expert in grain drying, storage and handling, as well as structural engineering, building environments, indoor air quality and building plans. His research and Extension programs center on post-harvest engineering, and structural and building environment engineering.

He also serves as an international consultant for grain drying and storage engineering, as well as potato, carrot and onion storage engineering. In addition, Hellevang serves as a consultant for sugar beet storage system designs.

Other speakers include Plumblee, who will speak about corn and soybean agronomics. Adam Whitfield, Clemson doctoral student, will give an update on insect thresholds in soybean and Cory Heaton, wildlife specialist, will talk about determining the economic impact of deer populations on soybean.

Scott Mickey, ag economist, will talk about economics and budgeting for the 2024 crop year, followed by Bennett Harrelson, Clemson doctoral student, who will talk about double cropping corn and soybean. John Mueller, nematologist and plant pathologist, will talk about fungicide and nematode management.

Following lunch, updates will be given by representatives from the National Corn Growers Association and the American Soybean Association.

There is no charge for this meeting, which is expected to end at about 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Michael Plumblee at mplumbl@clemson.edu, or (803) 284-3343.

Certified crop adviser and pesticide recertification credits have been applied for.

Integrated Resource Plan Will Be Submitted to PSC May 15

The Board also approved submitting the IRP to the S.C. Public Service Commission on May 15 for the Commission to begin its review process.

The IRP summarizes 18 months of detailed analysis of various resource options and combinations to develop the preferred portfolio. Key components of that portfolio, envisioned to be implemented by the mid-2030s, include:

“South Carolina needs a modern, cleaner energy portfolio that supports South Carolina’s growing economy and growing adoption of electric vehicles and other power-dependent technologies across the state,” said President and CEO Jimmy Staton. “This portfolio provides all of that, and it equips Santee Cooper to continue to power South Carolina reliably – and affordably – for decades to come.”

The preferred portfolio includes flexibility to allow for a joint build with Dominion Energy South Carolina of a new natural gas unit, which the two utilities are exploring for potential economies of scale and other efficiencies. The preferred portfolio also can adjust as necessary to include dispatch of customer-provided resources, in particular power purchase agreements proposed by Central Electric Power Cooperative, Santee Cooper’s largest customer.

The 2023 IRP reflects input by customers and other stakeholders gathered during five public meetings, held from March 2022 to April 2023, and hundreds of comments and questions offered throughout the public input process. Additional technical meetings were also held as requested by stakeholder groups.

Santee Cooper and its expert consultants analyzed several resource portfolios, including a lowest-cost option, a no-new-carbon option, an option that retired all coal units by 2033, and a net-zero-by-2050 option. The preferred portfolio aligns closely with the lowest-cost portfolio but includes more battery storage, accelerated implementation of solar resources, and fewer gas-fired combustion turbines.

More information about Santee Cooper’s 2023 IRP is available at www.santeecooper.com/IRP, and that site will be updated once the final version is filed May 15 and throughout the regulatory review process.
