Take action to stop a nearly $30 billion mistake from increasing your utility bill.
Ratepayers in Georgia, Alabama and northeast Florida are footing the bill for one of the most costly and mismanaged nuclear expansion projects in history. The ongoing Plant Vogtle nuclear expansion project was originally expected to cost $14.5 billion for the construction of two new units. The first, Unit 3, was to enter service in April 2016 and the second, Unit 4, was to enter service in April 2017.
Today, JEA estimates that the cost-to-complete has ballooned to nearly $30 billion.Take action to stop a nearly $30 billion mistake from increasing your utility bill. The expected completion dates have been delayed to November 2021 for Unit 3 and November 2022 for Unit 4. These estimates are NOT guaranteed; and if the past is any guide, the cost will continue to rise.
You and your fellow ratepayers will continue to carry the burden of these cost overruns through more expensive utility bills. Contact your local legislators and the Georgia Public Service Commission to voice your concern and urge them to protect ratepayers by stopping the Plant Vogtle expansion project.
