Fate Of Plant Vogtle, Cost To Customers, To Be Decided Thursday

Dec 20, 2017

On this edition of "Political Rewind," the Public Service Commission is about to make a momentous decision that will hit Georgia Power customers in the pocketbook and influence the future of nuclear power across the country. Will the PSC uphold Georgia Power’s plan to continue construction of the troubled Plant Vogtle? Will the commission approve a power company proposal to increase the surcharge customers are already paying for building the nuclear plant? Plus, we’ll look at the fallout from the blackout at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. Who’s to blame for the outage itself and what grade does Mayor Kasim Reed deserve for his response to the crisis?
