Voice Over: You’ve probably heard about the plan to combine South Carolina Electric and Gas with Dominion Energy. The benefits for electric customers are clear: an average cash payment of $1,000. At least 5% lower rates. And Dominion Energy would eliminate forever nearly $1.7 billion in debt from the failed nuclear project.

If the two companies don’t combine? No $1,000. SCE&G customers could still be on the hook for 50 years of payments for the failed nuclear project. And electric rates, already some of the highest in the nation, could go even higher.

So: A $1,000 average cash payment, permanently lower rates, and nearly $1.7 billion in debt eliminated…or no $1,000, higher rates and 50 years of debt payoff.

Contact your state legislators at BrighterEnergyFuture.com and tell them you want your cash payment and lower rates.

Dominion Energy and SCE&G: Brighter together.
