Southern’s Georgia Nuclear Plant Could See Delays Until 2023

  • The Vogtle plant has already had multiple schedule slips
  • Company expects sooner start dates than independent monitors

The nuclear plant Southern Company is building in Georgia will likely see more delays and cost overruns, according to a recent filing with state regulators.

The Vogtle plant has one unit 3 that most likely won’t begin operations before November 2022, while the other, unit 4, won’t start up until at least a year later, according to forecasts from independent consultants monitoring the project for the state. The project’s schedule has already been pushed back multiple times.
