A public hearing for the 16th semi-annual Vogtle Construction Monitoring (VCM) review will be held at the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) on Thursday, June 29 at 10AM ET. The PSC Commissioners need to hear your concerns as a Georgia Power customer about this out-of-control nuclear train wreck!

The two nuclear reactors were supposed to be operating by now but construction is only ~40% complete more than eight years into the project. Making matters worse, the water-intensive reactors no longer have an estimated completion date or final price tag mainly because the designer/builder, Toshiba’s Westinghouse, filed for bankruptcy because of the massive losses incurred from this bungled project.

Vogtle’s costs will increase significantly and the majority of the burden will fall on the Company’s customers, not shareholders, it the Georgia PSC Commissioners don’t stand up and say “NO” to more cost increases. Recent news has reported that what was once a $14 billion project may likely double to a shocking $29 billion!

The PSC Commissioners need to hear from Georgia Power customers. Find more information on docket #29849 here.
