In this Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012 photo, an earth mover works on a new nuclear reactor at the Plant Vogtle nuclear power plant in Augusta, Ga. One of the plant's existing reactors is shown in the background.

Buzz Miller, executive vice president of nuclear development at Southern Co., who oversees the project, says quality counts more than cost. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) less
