The Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) today voted unanimously to approve the continued construction of Plant Vogtle units 3 & 4. In a detailed 15-part motion, the PSC recognized the long-term significance of this project to Georgia’s future energy diversity.

“Today’s PSC decision will help keep our businesses competitive both nationally and globally for decades to come.”

“For Georgia, completion and bringing into service Plant Vogtle units 3 & 4 will enhance long-term energy security and supply reliability, provide emissions-free generation diversity and energy affordability for all Georgia energy consumers including our business and industry consumers.”
