It’s appropriate that Oglethorpe Power, Georgia Power and their partners are moving forward with the Vogtle nuclear energy project. A diverse fuel mix is vital as electric co-ops work to meet 21st-century energy needs and ensure continued access to affordable, reliable power.
Fuel diversity used to generate electricity is paramount consideration when you look at long-term energy needs. The Vogtle reactors will help Georgia’s electric cooperatives diversify while protecting America’s leadership in nuclear energy. The decision to continue the development of Vogtle 3-4 is a win for Georgia electric cooperatives and our national energy security.
