Albany -- City leaders from all over Southwest Georgia attended a private meeting about nuclear power Tuesday afternoon.

The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia invited all of their customers to the meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn.

MEAG Power is part owner of the Plant Vogtle nuclear facility. Plant Vogtle already has two nuclear generators but may add two more. The media and the public were not allowed in the meeting.

"They are closed because Westinghouse who is the contractor that will do the construction considers the pricing information and terms of warranties to be proprietary information," said Albany City Attorney, C. Nathan Davis.

There are only two other construction companies in the country that can build this type of nuclear generator.

So details about their pricing is kept secret to keep from getting to their competitors.
