Vogtle nuclear reactors, years overdue, $billions overbudget – who pays?

Savannah Now 30th March 2018, The first of two new nuclear reactors at Plant Vogtle near Waynesboro was
supposed to open two years ago today, with the second following last year.
Instead, what’s now the nation’s only new nuclear project grinds on,
five years behind schedule and billions of dollars overbudget.

Construction continues at a pace of $91 million a month, with ratepayers largely on the
hook for those costs. But the issue of who pays for Vogtle isn’t yet a
done deal, with legal challenges pending, including one challenge brought
to court by a former Georgia governor. And ethics watchdogs are examining
the regulators, finding what they say are cozy relationships with the
utility and slack record keeping.
