Dominion also will assume SCANA's debt, making the deal worth a total of $14.6 billion. Dominion also is offering to cut rates for customers of SCANA's South Carolina Electric & Gas subsidiary, and absorb other costs of a failed nuclear project north of Columbia.

A decade ago, nuclear power’s future looked bright. It offered a carbon-free energy alternative amid worries about greenhouse gases and climate change. But a lot has happened since then, like the 2011 meltdown at Fukushima and skyrocketing nuclear construction costs. Last month, two South Carolina utilities scrapped a multi-billion dollar nuclear project. Now, the future of nuclear is even cloudier.
