Death of Scana's V.C. Summer project puts industry on notice
August 1, 2017

As reported by E&E.

The $8.3 billion in federal taxpayer-backed nuclear loan guarantees at Vogtle Units 3 & 4 are mentioned in this article, by Stan Wise, GA PSC Commissioner, in the context of differences between the now-cancelled Summer Units 2 & 3 in SC, and the not-yet-cancelled Vogtle 3 & 4 units in GA:

Plant Vogtle also has more owners to spread out costs and has a federal loan guarantee. What's more, Toshiba has agreed to pay billions to both plants in parent guarantees, and more money is going to Vogtle, he said.

The statement came amidst a section of the article discussing Vogtle 3 & 4's future. GA decision makers may rule yet this month whether or not to proceed with Vogtle Units 3 & 4.
