客户的影响

从Vogtle扩张开始, Georgia Power has worked to pursue all available benefits for customers and minimize the impact of the new units on electric bills. In addition to the agreement to receive 100 percent of parent guarantee funds available from Toshiba by Dec. 15, 2017, the company recently announced a conditional commitment of approximately $1.67 billion in additional loan guarantees for the project from the U.S. 美国能源部. 

今天, after including anticipated customer benefits from federal production tax credits, interest savings from loan guarantees from the DOE and the fuel savings of nuclear energy, the projected peak rate impact to Georgia Power retail customers is approximately 10 percent, with 5 percent related to the project already in rates – well below original projections of approximately 12 percent.

CWIP

传统上, utility companies recover financing costs for construction projects after the project’s completion. Utility companies either finance or absorb cost of materials and labor. 在漫长的建设期间, this requires a tremendous amount of investment and financing costs including interest expenses. The construction and financing costs are then added to customer’s rates over the life-cycle of the plant.

Under Georgia Power’s 核 建设 Cost Recovery (NCCR) plan with CWIP in Rate Base and the 2016 Stipulation, 客户产生的“利息上的利息”费用更少. Recovery of financing costs during the construction period reduces the total return required over the life of the plant. CWIP in Rate Base also improves the credit ratings of utility companies, which often results in lower financing costs for the company overall. 更好的信用评级意味着公司更低的利息成本, 直接受益于客户的费率.
