Santee Cooper begins dismantling generating station
As part of its decommissioning of Grainger Generating Station, Santee Cooper is preparing to begin the process of dismantling the plant, which includes the administrative offices and generating equipment.
Crews will be on site later this month, and the process is expected to take about two years. Santee Cooper plans to dismantle the building and clear the property, with the idea that it could be reused for a new commercial venture.
“Santee Cooper is working with the local community to make sure we gather their input as we make decisions about Grainger,” said Jim Brogdon, executive vice president and general counsel. “We will continue to engage our neighbors and customers as we go through this process.”
Santee Cooper is South Carolina’s largest power producer, the largest Green Power generator and the ultimate source of electricity for 2 million people across the state. To learn more, visit www.santeecooper.com.
