The total cost of the V.C. Summer expansion project in South Carolina still falls within estimates, even though the startup schedule for the two new reactors has been adjusted, said officials with South Carolina Electric & Gas. About $3.5 billion has been spent so far on the project. The first reactor is slated to come online at the end of 2017 or in early 2018, instead of March 2017, said Steve Byrne, SCE&G's chief operating officer and president of generation and transmission.
