Cayce, SC, July 29, 2010...SCANA Corporation (NYSE: SCG) today reported consolidated earnings for the second quarter of 2010 of $54 million, or $.43 per share, compared to $55 million, or $.45 per share, for the second quarter of 2009.

Earnings for the second quarter of 2010 reflect the impact of higher property taxes, interest and operating and maintenance expenses and share dilution compared to last year, which more than offset improved electric margins driven by favorable weather, customer growth and the electric base rate increase under the Base Load Review Act (BLRA).
