The staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said September 27 that there are no major safety or environmental concerns that should prevent commissioners from granting a license to Southern Company to build two new nuclear reactors at an existing two-unit plant in Georgia. The Southern Company and its three partners appeared before the Commission last week to explain why the companies should receive the first license to build new nuclear reactors in the United States in 30 years. A vote on whether to grant the license is not expected until the end of the year or early 2012.
