Plant Vogtle is Georgia’s second nuclear power plant, after the Savannah River Site. The 3,100-acre site was constructed by 14,000 engineers, masons, welders, mechanics, and construction workers in the 1970s. The $3.6 billion project yielded massive 4-foot-thick walls and housed two 355-ton reactors on concrete slabs. You can see the two towering 548-foot cooling structures for miles. Plant Vogtle sends millions of kilowatts of electric power all across the state of Georgia.
