The article reports on the result of the study conducted by the South Carolina Electric and Gas Co. (SCE&G) which focuses on the potential of nuclear power to address the energy needs in South Carolina. SCE&G stresses that the utilization of nuclear power to produce electricity is cost efficient compared to renewable energy sources. It reveals that the nuclear power energy will help the state reduce greenhouse gas emission, address the electricity needs of consumers, and promotes the efficient use of energy.
