Dear <<First Name>>,
I am going to skip the transparency and ethics email to update you on Georgia’s Plant Vogtle, because there is urgent news. There’s been another delay, and the next public hearing is this Tuesday Jan. 17th at 9:30 at the PSC commission hearing room, 244 Washington Street, Atlanta.
Plant Vogtle is the only nuclear power plant under construction in the U.S., and the first of two nuclear reactors, Unit 3, is nearing completion. Georgia Power had estimated Unit 3 will be operational by end of March but it just got pushed to April due to a “vibrating pipe”. This delay will cost ratepayers - us - about $30 million dollars.
