The rise in construction costs are related to, among other things, a change in what labor may cost over the long term for the project, said Pete Ivey, vice president of nuclear development support for Georgia Power’s sister company, Southern Nuclear.

The increased costs do not impact the total cost of the project and will not appear on customer bills, Georgia Power said.
