The Board of MEAG Power voted unanimously today to continue construction of Plant Vogtle Units 3 & 4. MEAG Power joins co-owners, Georgia Power and the City of Dalton, which had, earlier, voted to continue. We await a determination from Oglethorpe Power, from whom an affirmative vote is also necessary for the project to continue.
MEAG Power will issue a more detailed statement following release of Oglethorpe’s decision.
MEAG Power is a nonprofit entity that was created by the Georgia General Assembly in 1975 to generate and transmit reliable, competitively-priced wholesale electric power to 49 Participant communities throughout the state. These communities have access to MEAG Power’s multibillion-dollar resources, including some of the lowest-cost, emissions-free energy in the region, as well as one of the most diversified fuel portfolios. MEAG Power operates in one of the largest and fastest-growing regions in the United States because of Georgia’s attractive logistics, pro-business environment and talented workforce.
