Statement on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Grid Reliability Study

This study is an important undertaking by the U.S. Department of Energy to ensure the reliability and resiliency of the energy grid. A strong energy grid is critical to our national and economic security. Southern Company will continue our support of a comprehensive national energy policy that develops the full portfolio of generation sources – natural gas, nuclear, 21st century coal, renewables and energy efficiency; embraces innovation and promotes America’s financial integrity. Such a policy would strengthen Southern Company’s ability to deliver on our commitment to provide the clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy our customers deserve.
