You gotta love the Orwellian - "adjusts schedule" and/or "revised schedule".

 The total generation from the two reactors will be about 18-20 TWh/year which hopefully means that most of the remaining coal generation in Georgia is replaced. It now looks like the first full year of output from these reactors will be 2024 - assuming there are no more delays.  It will have basically have taken a decade to finish construction.

Meanwhile, in the 2020s Georgia will steadily add 2-3 TWh of solar generation per year along with any needed battery storage. By 2030 - solar generation in Georgia could easily surpass 30 TWh. Hmmm... that's interesting.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
