These two reactors (Virgil Summer 2 & 3) are approved for construction, but no construction has started. The owners (SCE&G) have not done any early site preparation and have not even applied for that permit.

I suggest you do a little research before making such claims. Below is a 3 minute YouTube video clip showing a significant amount of work has already started.

That video was made in September of last year, so undoubtedly more work has been done since then. You can see the site preparation is well underway, the nuclear island lower concrete layers have been set, the large heavy-lift construction crane has been erected, and at the 1:50 mark, the steel lower containment shell has been welded together.

A look at Google Maps also shows much activity at the VC Summer 2&3 construction site. You can see the items mentioned above in this view.
