In Order No. 2010-12, in Docket No. 2009-293-E, the Commission approved SCE&G's request to, among other things, approve an updated schedule of capital costs for the project. The updated capital cost schedule did not alter the total estimated capital cost for the Units of $4.5 billion in 2007 dollars but changed the forecasted timing of cash flows.
In Order No. 2011-345, the Commission approved an updated capital cost schedule for the Units which also removed all projected contingency costs as required by the decision of the South Carolina Supreme Court in South Carolina Energy Users Comm. v. South Carolina Pub. Serv. Comm'n, 388 S.C. 486, 697 S.E.2d 587 (2010). In Order No. 2012-884, the Commission approved an estimated capital cost for the Units of $4.5 billion in 2007 dollars and a new milestone schedule reflecting substantial completion dates for Units 2 and 3 of March 15,2017, and May 15, 2018, respectively. The South Carolina Supreme Court affirmed the Commission's ruling in all respects. South Carolina Energy Users Comm. v. South Carolina Elec. & Gas, 410 S.C. 348, 764 S.E.2d 913 (2014).
In Order No. 2015-661 , the Commission approved an updated construction schedule with new substantial completion dates for Units 2 and 3 of June 19, 2019, and June 16, 2020, respectively and an updated capital cost estimate of $5.2 billion in 2007 dollars. No appeal was taken from Order No. 2015-661 .
In October 2015, SCE&G signed an Amendment to the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Agreement for the project (the "Amendment") which resh·uctured the project construction team, revised key terms of the construction contract, established new liquidated damages and completion incentives for the contractor, resolved outstanding claims between the pmties, granted SCE&G a fixed price option for the remaining work required under the construction contract and extended the substantial completion dates for each unit by approximately two months.
On May 26, 2016, SCE&G filed a Petition with the Commission, pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. § 58-33-270(E), seeking an order approving an updated construction schedule and capital cost schedule for the Units. The updated construction schedule reflects new guaranteed substantial completion dates for Units 2 and 3 of August 31 , 2019, and August 31, 2020, respectively. The new capital cost schedules reflect additional costs associated with the Amendment and with certain change orders outside the Amendments. It also reflects additional Owner's costs principally associated with the Amendment and the change in the guaranteed substantial completion dates, and additional costs to upgrade ce1tain project-related transmission equipment. In total, the capital cost schedule reflects approximately $807 million in additional cost that have been identified since the issuance of Order No. 2015-661 . The elements of the cost are set fmth in more detail in the Petition.
The capital cost estimate for which the Company seeks Commission approval in this proceeding is $6.8 billion in 2007 dollars and $7.7 billion with escalation. In its filing, the Company states that it may seek to update its capital cost estimates during the pendency of these proceedings if additional cost items are identified or if cash flow schedules are updated.
S.C. Code Ann. § 58-33-270(E) authorizes SCE&G to petition the Commission for modification of any of the schedules related to the construction of a base load generation facility . This statute provides that such requests shall be granted if, after a hearing, the Commission finds that the changes are not the result of imprudence on the pmt of SCE&G.
