Columbia, SC, August 1, 2008...SCANA Corporation (NYSE: SCG) today reported consolidated earnings for the second quarter of 2008 of $57 million, or $.48 per share, compared to $55 million, or $.47 per share, for the second quarter of 2007.

“Earnings improved for the second quarter of 2008 compared to last year, with the impact of sustained electric and natural gas customer growth and the 4.4 percent retail electric rate increase that went into effect in January of this year more than offsetting higher operating and maintenance expenses, higher property taxes due to increased capital expenditures, additional net interest expense related to new long-term debt and a pricing settlement agreement at SCANA Energy Georgia.” said Jimmy Addison, senior vice president and chief financial officer.
