Two Vogtle newbuild project owners — that together hold a 52.7% project share — are suing Southern Co. subsidiary Georgia Power to shield themselves from rising costs as construction of the twin-unit AP1000 faces continued delays. The legal challenges could force Georgia Power to take on all future capital costs, while the company’s ratepayers stand to take on a larger share of operational costs. Still, the dispute is unlikely to halt the project given how close Vogtle-3 is to completion.
