The Edwin I. Hatch nuclear power plant in Georgia has been operating since the mid-seventies, and currently provides carbon-free energy for co-owners Georgia Power, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, Dalton Utilities, and Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia.

If approved, the extension would continue operations at Hatch until the 2050s. Click below to read the full article from World Nuclear News.
