Vogtle Information Center
This article details the opening of a new media contact center by Southern Nuclear to be tied to operations at Vogtle. This center appears to be part of a general approach to get the public on the side of nuclear .. and it's a good idea! EVERY plant (or at least 90% of them) had a public information center neaby to educate the public. This center is slightly different -- it's intended mainly as a focus point for dissemination of information in case of an event at Vogtle -- but it shows the company's willingness to attempt to get that contact back with the public, and the media, that most power companies have lacked for twenty or thirty years. Bravo!
