A report from government monitors questions whether the delays experienced by Southern Co. subsidiary Georgia Power and its partners in building two additional nuclear reactors at Plant Vogtle could continue to escalate. The report states the companies face "many challenges" in meeting deadlines for the $14 billion project, and company officials are having trouble providing an accurate timeline. Some estimate each day of delay could cost $2 million. Georgia Power spokesman Brian Green said the utility can meet the current schedule and is reviewing the report.
