Georgia Power Completes Settlement Process Between Oglethorpe Power Corporation and Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia and Dalton Utilities
Jan 4 16
Georgia Power announced the completion of the settlement process between the co-owners (Georgia Power, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia and Dalton Utilities) of the Vogtle nuclear expansion and the project's contractors, Westinghouse and CB&I. The agreement settles all claims currently in litigation with the contractors, reaffirms the current in-service dates, adds additional contractual protections and positions Westinghouse and its affiliates as the primary contractor over the project. Including the settlement agreement, the project's remaining projected customer rate impact will total approximately 2.5%, which is an average of less than 1% per year through completion. Georgia Power's portion of the settlement cost is approximately $350 million, significantly less than the claims that were in litigation. Georgia Power plans to submit the settlement agreement to the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) in the coming weeks.
Georgia Power Collaborates with University of Georgia for New Solar Project in Athens, Georgia
Dec 21 15
Georgia Power has collaborated with University of Georgia, or UGA, for a new 1MW solar tracking demonstration project in Athens, Georgia. The new project is located on a 10-acre site owned by UGA and is the result of a utility/university collaboration to further demonstrate and advance solar energy in Georgia. Research will be conducted under a two-year collaboration with UGA researchers, spearheaded by the College of Engineering, to study solar forecasting and the effects of solar panel soiling versus performance. Data analysis and performance reporting will occur through a Georgia Power partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). The new solar project will demonstrate optimal orientation and tracking technology suited for Georgia's climate and energy demand with project partners studying the performance and reliability of various fixed and tracking configurations of five separate sub-arrays. Georgia Power owns and will operate the facility under a 20-year lease agreement with UGA. Energy produced by the facility will flow to the state's electric grid to serve customers. UGA will receive the renewable energy credits, or RECs.
