In 2013 Georgia only had some nominal solar energy online, less than
300 megawatts. In the 2013 IRP, the Commission added 525 megawatts
of solar energy. Three years later, in the 2016 IRP, another 1,600
megawatts were added. By the end of 2019, Georgia should have a
total of 2,400 megawatts of solar and other renewable energy on the
grid. The 2,210 megawatts approved Tuesday will nearly double
Georgia’s level of renewable energy by the end of 2022.
Doubling every two years is merely not falling farther behind.

Drawing from eight years of speaking at Southern Company Stockholder meetings,
and from that Homerville, Georgia explosion that destroyed Coffee Corner

Yes, fine AGL more than $2 million for that Homerville, GA explosion.
Require Georgia power to buy 12 gigawatts (GW) of solar power, not 1 GW.
Make Georgia Power pay to dispose of the coal ash it produced,
properly on its own property.
How about make the companies that put mercury in the air to come down
in our rivers pay for the costs to recreational fishing.
Stop throwing money down the Plant Vogtle nuclear hole.
