Placeholder Image
“Some will rob you with a six-gun, and some with a fountain pen.” -- Woody Guthrie Full disclosure: I have nothing against the state’s utilities. Back in the 1980s and ’90s when I was Director of the Palmetto Project, two of our board members were Virgil C. Summer, retired chair of the board of SCANA; and Al Ballard, head of the Electric Co-ops of South Carolina, the retail distributors of Santee Cooper’s power. Virgil was the founding chairman on the Palmetto Project.
