The Atlanta utility told state regulators recently that its cost to finish the plant is about $4.5 billion, boosting its total to about $8.8 billion, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported .

It has said the two new reactors, less than half-finished, can be completed by November, 2022 — about two years beyond previous estimates.

They were originally supposed to be done this year, eight years after work began.

The Georgia Public Service Commission will have the final say on the fate of the Vogtle expansion. The commission is expected to make a decision by February.

"It is not a good deal for Georgia ratepayers," said Liz Coyle, executive director of Georgia Watch, a consumer advocacy group.

Georgia Power has been spending about $50 million a month keeping construction going since the bankruptcy.

:shock: Does anyone seriously think that this nuclear plant will not continue to go over budget and past the deadlines.
