Santee Cooper to shutter two coal-fired plants - Business -


South Carolina’s state-owned power company will shut down coal-fired power plants permanently in Georgetown and Moncks Corner, rather than pay the cost of upgrading the facilities to meet tougher environmental rules.
Santee Cooper’s decision was expected, but formally commits the agency to shutter aging generating units at the Grainger station in Conway and the Jefferies station at Moncks Corner. The agency’s board voted Friday to authorize “retirement” of the plants, the company said in a news release.
