Vogtle - not the way to start
Although the previous post about the GOP candidate support for nuclear energy must be good news for Southern Company, this article shows that there is some bad news. Since one of the contractors didn't provide the proper questionnaire for construction employees, and then, when it did, had the unfortunate but totally avoidable mistake occur wherein a supervisor "filled out" the forms for some employees, the NRC has decided to pay a visit. This isn't the way to start off the first nuclear plant construction in almost a generation. Let's hope that this little hiccup is quickly put behind and that the two AP1000 plants go up.
