News outlets report a judge finalized the decision Tuesday. More than 1 million customers were involved in the lawsuit, represented by 13 law firms.
The attorneys sued SCE&G and parent company SCANA Corp. for its role in the abandoned construction of two nuclear plants in the state that never generated power. Virginia-based Dominion Energy took over the utility in January.
SCE&G agreed to pay $115 million and sell properties valued at $85 million.
The attorneys who argued the case will get $51 million plus nearly $900,000 for expenses.
It's unclear when SCE&G customers will get paid and how much each customer will receive.
