The Public Service Commission will soon set its
schedule for reviewing Georgia Power's plan to meet the state's
electricity needs starting in 2015.
Members of the PSC's Energy Committee are expected to propose a
schedule for the review during a meeting Thursday.
The Southern Co. subsidiary asked regulators for permission last
week to purchase power from outside suppliers over the coming years because pending pollution restrictions could force the utility to
shut down or upgrade some of its existing coal- and oil-fired power
plants.
Company officials disclosed Friday that those changes could
cost from $5 billion to $7 billion through 2020 if the federal
rules are adopted as proposed.
Under state law, the company's nearly 2.4 million customers must
pay for that cost.
