COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina agency that inspects public utilities has given the go-ahead for two new nuclear reactors in Fairfield County.


Executive director Dukes Scott said Friday that the Office of Regulatory Staff will recommend to the South Carolina Public Service Commission that it should approve an application for the plans.


The reactors at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station will be jointly owned by South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. and state-owned utility Santee Cooper.


SCE&G has applied under a new state law to begin charging higher rates now to help pay its portion of the $10 billion price tag for the reactors.


Scott says the Public Service Commission will consider the recommendation at a hearing in December.
