Utility predicts no significant change in bills

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Power officials predict there will be "no significant impact" on customer bills in 2014 related to its plans to close coal and oil units, new environmental programs or efficiency initiatives.

The utility said it does not plan to build any additional power plants in the next several years, saying growth in demand is slow enough to be covered by existing power stations, the Plant Vogtle nuclear expansion and energy efficiency.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/a1eK) that Georgia Power on Thursday filed its 20-year energy plan with state utility regulators. The report said customers will get the bulk of their power from natural gas.

The use of coal is expected to continue to diminish as Georgia Power closes more than a dozen coal and oil-fired units.
