When it comes to energy, a diverse supply is a secure supply. While some utilities are banking on a relatively narrow range of options, only Southern Company is using “all the arrows in the quiver.” Near Waynesboro, Ga., Georgia Power is building the first new nuclear units licensed in the U.S. in more than 30 years. In Kemper County, Miss., Mississippi Power is making plans to turn coal into a cleaner-burning gas. Just outside Atlanta, Georgia Power is replacing coal-fired units with natural gas, reducing emissions while actually increasing capacity. In New Mexico, Southern Power is advancing renewable energy with one of the country’s largest solar energy stations, and in Texas, putting the finishing touches on the largest biomass facility in the U.S. And that’s all in addition to our efforts at promoting energy efficiency. When it comes to reliability, we know from experience that spreading our resources is the best way to limit risk and ensure a dependable supply of electricity for generations to come.
