Now that the NRC is back up, we can see all the nukes that
went down during the government shutdown: nine of them.
If they’re not safe to run without NRC looking over their shoulder,
are they safe to run at all?
And two came back up.
Was that a prudent thing to do?
Meanwhile,...

More solar for Georgia must be a good thing if AFP is organizing
astroturf against it.
GA PSC decides Thursday.
Like another speaker
at

GA PSC last month,
I don’t think even

Bubba McDonald’s proposal to double solar requirements on Georgia Power
goes

nearly far...

Southern Company has the resources to do this; all it needs is the will.
 
SO CEO Tom Fanning didn’t budge from nuclear and coal,
but he did announce a tiger team to get on top of
distributed solar and wind through a smart grid,
headed by SO’s COO,
at the

22 May 2013 Southern Company Stockholder Meeting.

Bad news from Britain.
Let’s hope U.S. NRC doesn’t take this as a precedent.

We won!
 
It’s a win for jobs and clean air and plenty of water in Georgia!
Doubled requirements on solar power, and a dozen coal plants shut down.




2, 4, 6, 8, solar power can’t wait!



The

astroturf resistance fizzled, while the pro-solar grassroots
coalition...

22 May 2013 Southern Company Stockholder Meeting.






I have Mr. Dan Everett from Athens, Georgia, and he holds 11 shares of
Southern...
TF: Fantastic. Well, welcome. DE: Oh, thank you very much. And as a guy who has some professional interest in this stuff, I totally applaud the research that y'all are doing on energy technologies and renewable energies and efficiency technologies because it does take a while to deploy those.

Georgia Power tries to continue whistling in the fossil and nuclear fuel

The state Public Service Commission votes next week on Georgia Power's 20-year plan, the road map for providing electricity to 2.4 million customers. That includes the mix of fuels the company will use and the efforts the company undertakes to get customers to use less energy.
