Ex-SCANA employees accuse executives of fraud, mismanagement of nuclear project

COLUMBIA, S.C. — At times becoming emotional, two former SCANA employees delivered scathing testimony Tuesday accusing the Cayce-based company of fraud and mismanaging its failed, $9 billion effort to build two nuclear reactors in Fairfield County.

Carlette Walker, a former top accountant for SCE&G’s parent company, SCANA, told the S.C. Public Service Commission she was the “victim of a conspiracy” in which five SCANA executives worked to “run me out of the company” because she was no longer going to lie to the PSC or investors to cover up the project’s flaws.

And Ken Browne, a former SCE&G engineer, testified the utility continued to issue positive public statements about the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station expansion project despite its “extremely poor” progress and “substantial” cost overruns.

Walker and Browne are star witnesses for the state’s utility watchdog, the S.C. Office of Regulatory Staff, as it tries to persuade the PSC to permanently slash SCE&G’s nuclear-bloated electric rates.
