Plant Vogtle builders to regulators: Keep going

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The article reports:

Critics of the Vogtle project condemned Georgia Power’s recommendation.

“It is not a good deal for Georgia ratepayers,” said Liz Coyle, executive director of Georgia Watch, a consumer advocacy group. “I believe it is clearly uneconomic, and it is the (state utility regulator’s) responsibility to require the least-cost option,” said Coyle.

Critics have said the plant isn’t needed, and that Georgia Power and state regulators should also have looked at bigger investments in solar power and energy conservation instead.
