Government Gives Go Ahead for Two New Nuclear Reactors in Waynesboro Georgia Burke County

Real Estate Agent with Blanchard and Calhoun Real Estate/ Wilson Parker Homes

Well its official now and I know that the business community in both Burke County and Richmond County are excited.

Plant Vogtle, Southern Company has finally gotten the OK to build two new Nuclear Reactors in Waynesboro Georgia.


The new reactors will take an estimated 7 years to build that will be bringing approximately 7000 contractors to accomplish the job.

 In April 2008, Georgia Power, Toshiba Corp (6502.T)/Shaw Group Inc's (SGR.N) Westinghouse Electric Co and Shaw's Stone & Webster subsidiary agreed to build two Westinghouse 1,100 MW AP1000 reactors at Vogtle.

 The jobs created will be everything from painters, concrete workers, welders, and the list just goes on and on. That also means that we will need to house theses 7000 contractor/workers.

Many will come and park a RV and pay anywhere from $550.00 and up to live in a travel trailer or motor home. Some will be bringing there families and need rental property, and some will even buy a home for their families during there stay here in Waynesboro Ga.

For me one of the most exciting parts is that when completed Plant Vogtle will generate another 1900 jobs necessary to operate the two new Reactors.

I heard the news last week.  I think that is absolutely fantastic news, and great for the state and local economy.

We just got the final Government Ruling on Tuesday. how did you hear about the final decision last week? O course we I kinda knew that it was coming as Southern Company has spent millions of dollars moving people and trees and power lines. I have made it a point over the last few months to drive by and watch the progress. Of course my husband working there didn't hurt in keeping me in the loop.
