ATLANTA – Oct. 13, 2016 – Georgia Power announced today that the 1,000 foot-tall stack at its retired Plant Branch will be removed by controlled demolition on Oct. 15, 2016. The company is working to conduct the demolition shortly after daybreak, but has secured a window of time between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., based on weather and safety conditions. The stack demolition was postponed from this past weekend, due to Hurricane Matthew.

Removing the stack is the next step in the dismantlement of the retired power plant, which served electric customers reliably from 1965 through 2015.
