FILE- In this Feb. 15, 2012 file pool photo, the Unit 3 nuclear island where a new nuclear reactor will sit is seen before a visit by U.S. Secretary of Energy Secretary Steven Chu at the Vogtle nuclear power plant in Waynesboro, Ga. Vogtle initially estimated to cost $14 billion, has run into over $800 million in extra charges related to licensing delays. A state monitor has said bluntly that co-owner, Southern Co. can’t stick to its budget. The plant, whose first reactor was supposed to be operational by April 2016, is now delayed seven months.
