Plant Vogtle Two New Nuclear Reactors Create Jobs and Economic Growth for the CSRA

Posted by Christine and Drew May on Monday, November 25th, 2013 at 10:51pm.

Plant Vogtle is located just outside Waynesboro, Georgia in Burke County and is also a short drive to Hephzibah, Georgia in Richmond County. It is one of Georgia Powers two nuclear facilities in the Southern Company system that currently has two nuclear reactors in operation. These two nuclear reactor units began operation in the late 1980s and supply power to Southeast states.

Just last week (Nov. 21, 2013) concrete was poured for the new nuclear reactor unit number four also under construction along with unit three. When completed plant Vogtle will be the only US built nuclear reactor constructed in the last 30 years and be the only four unit nuclear facility in the entire United States.  The cost of units three and four is expected to exceed $4 billion when completed so this project has infused substantial money and economic stability to the Greater Augusta area.

The massive construction project has created many jobs and substantial demand for housing in and around the area bringing engineering and construction staff from all over the US.  Employees working at plant Vogtle live in many of the surrounding counties including Columbia Co,unty Richmond County, Burke County, Aiken County, and surrounding areas.

Besides the Southern Company, many of the employees coming to the area also work for CB & I, a complete energy infrastructure focused company specializing in design, engineering, construction and fabrication services.

If you're coming to or leaving the area based on employment at Plant Vogtle, Leading Edge Real Estate is always ready to assist with your housing needs real estate needs.
