Investment company Pacolet Milliken denies a Charleston, S.C. newspaper report that it has offered to purchase utility Santee Cooper from the state of South Carolina. The Post & Courier cites an unnamed source "with knowledge of the negotiations" to report that NextEra Energy (NEE) and Pacolet are each talking about a possible purchase of the state-owned utility for about $10 billion . The reported sale price would be more than the $7.9 billion that Virginia-based Dominion Corp. has offered to purchase SCANA Corp. (SCG) — Santee Cooper’s partner in the failed $21 billion V.C.

A key to the high production, says Chief Nuclear Officer Preston Gillespie, has been Duke’s focus on reducing the time needed for refueling and service.

Duke Energy Carolinas is pushing back against what it calls “unreasonable or unfounded” challenges to its proposed 13.3% rate hike that, in the case of one often-influential opponent, would turn the hike into a 6.4% rate cut. Numerous groups have filed testimony with the N.C. Utilities Commission contending that hundreds of millions of Duke’s proposed $598.7 million increase should be disallowed. The most thorough, item-by-item challenge to Duke’s proposal was filed by the commission’s Public Staff, the state’s utility customer advocate.
