What is the Surcharge ?
It's like a tax, an added 9 % extra every month on the school's electric bill...and on your electric bill, too.
Look for the "Nuclear Construction Cost Recovery" [NCCR] on your home electric bill.
This is a local issue. You and I can do something about it. ...We have until February, 2019, to get it going.
We can ask ...insist... that OUR state legislature change the law to stop Georgia Power from taking school tax money for their new power plant.
Your local senator and representative can vote to amend the law.
They need to know you want it done.
