Federal Judge Denies SCE&G’s Request for Preliminary Injunction

A federal judge today denied SCE&G’s request for a preliminary injunction regarding the implementation of Act 258, which is the South Carolina law that temporarily removes from SCE&G’s retail electric rates the increases approved after 2010 under the Base Load Review Act (BLRA). We will review the court’s order and decide quickly whether to appeal the decision. In the meantime, the company will strive to offset the operational impact of the temporary rate reduction by continuing to cut costs and delaying spending without sacrificing safety and reliability.
