A new report on the construction status of the Vogtle nuclear plant, released Wednesday by Moody’s Investors Service, provides greater detail than a May 10 statement released by Georgia Power and cites a number of risks that could further delay the plant’s opening date. Moody’s report addresses a list of frequently asked questions about the Vogtle project as it relates to MEAG, the Municipal Electric Authority. MEAG is a partner in the Vogtle project, along with Georgia Power, Oglethorpe Power Corp., and the City of Dalton Combined Utility. The first sentence of Moody’s report observes: “Construction is progressing on the Vogtle Nuclear Units 3 and 4 in Georgia, offering additional credit stability to the owners of the units, though the work is still only around 50 percent completed and is several years behind the original schedule.”
