Resilience

Delivering today, preparing for tomorrow

Every day, we're putting our vision of a resilient energy future in motion. By making smart investments today, including carbon-free nuclear, we're preparing to meet our customers' needs tomorrow.

Our subsidiary Georgia Power is meeting the state's growing energy needs with Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4, the first newly constructed nuclear units built in the country in more than three decades. Once Unit 4 is complete, Plant Vogtle will be the single largest generator of carbon-free energy in the U.S., helping us take another step towards a net zero future.

Vogtle represents one of the largest and most important infrastructure investment projects underway in the country, the units will help increase our nation's energy independence and national security.

"With Unit 3 completed, and Unit 4 in the final stages of construction and testing, this project shows just how new nuclear can and will play a critical role in achieving a clean energy future for the United States."

Net Zero

Building a cleaner, brighter energy future

We know that building a successful and sustainable energy future means embracing the transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Our growing portfolio of zero carbon resources plays an integral role in helping us meet our net zero by 2050 goal.

We are transforming our business operations as we build a diverse energy portfolio, develop innovative programs and services for our customers, and research new clean energy technologies. Having a diversified energy portfolio is crucial to how we are reducing emissions while maintaining reliability and affordability for those we serve.

In 2022, 30% of our generating capacity was from clean energy sources and we're the 5th largest owner of renewables in the U.S.
