A controversial project has two nuclear reactors being constructed at Georgia Power’s Plant Vogtle.
A watchdog group argues that complicit state officials enabled the cost to be borne on the backs of consumers, with little risk to the company or stockholders. He also says the new nukes allow the utility to sell excess power out of state.
Georgia Power refutes that, adding that the new plants and their construction financing will save consumers billions over time while creating up to 25,000 jobs.
