Report: Georgia unlikely to block Plant Vogtle spending any time soon

Georgia Public Service Commission Georgia Power Plant Vogtle spending not likely to be blocked nuclear

Georgia’s Public Service Commission is unlikely to block spending by Georgia Power, a subsidiary of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO), on the nuclear build project at Plant Vogtle in the near term, the Associated Press reports.

According to the AP, the report recommends that the commission approve $209 million in spending on construction of the two new reactors for the latest six-month period. The AP says the report “appears to build a case about why some spending by [Georgia Power] should not be passed along to customers” but did not recommend blocking that spending until after Georgia Power resolves an outstanding $930 million legal dispute with its contractor at the site, Westinghouse-Shaw.
