Special Announcement: Plant Vogtle Unit 4 has officially entered commercial Operation

We’re very excited to share that Vogtle Unit 4 has officially entered commercial operation and is serving Georgians right now! Vogtle Unit 3 entered service in July of last year.

Vogtle Units 3 & 4 are an essential part of Georgia Power’s commitment to delivering clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy. Nuclear energy offers high reliability and efficient operations around the clock. And, with all four units now in operation, Plant Vogtle – located near Waynesboro, Georgia – is now the largest generator of clean energy in the nation, expected to produce more than 30 million megawatt hours of electricity each year.

Together, Units 3 & 4 will produce enough electricity to power an estimated 1 million homes and businesses with reliable, emissions-free energy for the next 60 to 80 years. The benefits from these units will be enjoyed by our children and our children’s children for decades to come – that is something we at Georgia Power are incredibly proud of.

As we mark the completion of the expansion, we’re grateful for the leadership and foresight of the Georgia Public Service Commission, as well as the steadfast dedication from all the project’s co-owners (Oglethorpe Power, MEAG Power and Dalton Utilities) along the way. So many people have worked tirelessly to deliver the first newly constructed nuclear units in the U.S. in more than 30 years. It was a challenging, complex process, but we know that this new generation source represents a long-term investment into the energy future of our state.

With Georgia experiencing extraordinary growth, it’s important to us that we continue to meet your energy needs not only today, but decades from now. Plant Vogtle is an essential part of how we do that.

This project began with you, our customers, in mind, and we’re so happy to have these new units serving you today.

Thank you,

Kim Greene,

Georgia Power, Chairman, President and CEO
