- Florida replaced an expensive coal-fired plant with cheap solar power
 -Georgia to develop region's biggest solar farm
 -South Carolina bails on $20 billion nuke plant, eyes renewables

And that's the way it should be done, fiscally responsible.  Not by killing jobs, and with crushing debt and taxes.
