Resolves NO; VOGTLE-4 still marked “Under Construction” as of 2024-01-01

The second reactor isn't supposed to be done until 2024

predicted YES

@JosephNoonan They've been saying last quarter of 2023 or first quarter of 2024. Note that Unit 3 has been marked "operational" on that website for over a month (maybe since its first grid connection in March?), but just reached 100% power on May 29th, and the Southern Company website still says it "projects a Unit 3 in-service date in June of 2023". So Unit 4 may be "operational" well before it goes into commercial operation.

Vogtle4 is undergoing testing, and it looks like they actually got #3 operational early, so let's go YES!

bought Ṁ20 of NO

My No is a reflection of construction delays. I’m excited to see new nuclear power in the US.
