•, Seeking Alpha

For the first time, the new reactor reached output of ~1,100 MW, the maximum energy the unit is licensed to generate in the reactor core.

Operators will continue to test the reactor at its full production level, and the unit is projected to enter commercial operations in June.

Georgia Power said it has begun initial testing on Vogtle's Unit 4 and expects the reactor to begin commercial operations late this year or early 2024.
