Group says Georgia nuclear plant costs rise to $29 billion

Group says Georgia nuclear plant costs rise to $29 billion | 15 June 2017 | A clean energy group that has opposed a nuclear project in Georgia estimates the plant's cost has soared to $29 billion in the wake of the bankruptcy of the half-finished plant's contractor, Westinghouse Electric Co, a unit of Toshiba Corp. Sara Barczak of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) said the new estimate adds $9 billion to its projected cost of the Vogtle project, which has been beset by delays and billions of dollars of cost overruns. SACE based its latest estimate on a report last week by two utility consultants to the Georgia Public Service Commission, which regulates utilities, including Southern Co's Georgia Power.
