State regulators delay showdown over nuclear power plant
ATLANTA (AP) -
Georgia regulators are putting off a potential showdown over the costs of building a nuclear power plant.
A report filed Friday suggests it's highly unlikely the staff at the Public Service Commission will attempt to block any of Georgia Power's spending on two new reactors at Plant Vogtle until after the utility resolves a $930 million business dispute with its partners.
Friday's report recommended that the Public Service Commission approve $209 million in project spending during the last six-month period ending in December. That report appears to build a case about why some spending by the Southern Co. subsidiary should not be passed along to customers. But it did not recommend blocking any of that spending now.
Georgia Power says all the spending has been in its customers' interest.
