Southern Company is the only U.S. energy company developing and innovating around the full portfolio.Today, the Southern Company system generates approximately 22 percent of its electric power from coal and 50 percent from natural gas, 16 percent from nuclear and 12 percent from renewables; as compared to 2007 when the system generated about 70 percent of its electricity from coal and 15 percent from natural gas.
Over the last decade, we have significantly transformed our electricity generation mix. Since 2010, we have invested $20 billion in developing low-carbon and carbon-free resources, and we have added more than 5,000 megawatts (MW) of renewable generating capacity through our subsidiaries. We expect to add an additional 3,000 MW of renewable generating capacity by 2023.
Our subsidiaries are focused on strategically increasing the role of renewables in our energy mix. We have numerous R&D projects underway to determine the potential of emerging cost-effective renewable resources and technologies.
Nuclear energy, which currently accounts for about 20 percent of the U.S. energy mix, must continue to be a part of the full portfolio of energy resources.
Nuclear energy is emission-free, safe and increases America’s fuel diversity using a low-cost, reliable, 24/7, abundant resource.
In 2018, nuclear power supplied about 15 percent of the Southern Company system’s electricity generation from three plants: Vogtle and Hatch in Georgia and Farley in Alabama. Southern Company is committed to the safe operation of its nuclear energy facilities with equipment and systems that meet rigorous Nuclear Regulatory Commission safety and design regulations.
