Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, ''Lighthouses'' as the poet said ''erected in the sea of time'.' They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind, Books are humanity in print.
~ Arthur Schopenhauer (February 22, 1788 - September 21, 1860)
We believe the settlement agreement balances the interests of all the parties involved. This is the first time SCE&G has increased its natural gas base rates since 1989. The new rates provide us the opportunity to earn an adequate return on our natural gas assets. The additional revenue will enhance our ability to make new capital investments that will be needed to support future growth and economic development in South Carolina.
