    2. What is the Largest Environmental Challenge Facing Georgia?

    3. Population Growth

    4. 25 Years From Now

    5. Georgia Power’s Environmental Commitment Past & Projected SO2 Bowen 3&4 Scrubbers Wansley 1 & 2 Scrubbers Clean Air Interstate Rule, Clean Air Mercury Rule, PM2.5 & 8-Hr. Ozone Nonattainment Bowen 1 & 2 Scrubbers TBD NOx Hammond 1-4 Scrubber TBD Low Sulfur Coal TBD Low NOx Burners on Larger Boilers TBD SCR’s @ Bowen, Wansley & Hammond 4 TBD Fuel Switching @ Scherer TBD Low NOx Burners @ Branch TBD TBD TBD TBD '90 '95 '00 '03 $1 Billion Spent >$4 Billion Potentially

    6. Plant Bowen SO2 Scrubbers SO2 Scrubbers Scrubber’s reduce sulfur dioxide emissions

    7. So What Does That Really Mean? • Clean Air Interstate Rule • Clean Air Mercury Rule • Georgia Multipollutant Rule • Nonattainment Area Requirements • Clean Air Visibility Rule

    8. The Greenhouse Effect EARTH Some solar radiation is reflected Some of infrared radiation re-emitted in all directions by greenhouse gas. The effect is warming of the Earth’s surface and the lower atmosphere. Solar radiation ATMOSPHERE Most radiation is absorbed Infrared radiation is emitted from the Earth’s surface.

    9. Climate Change Policy “Climate change is a challenging issue for our world and our nation. Southern Company is committed to a leadership role in finding solutions that make technological, environmental, and economic sense. The focus of this effort must be on developing and deploying technologies that reduce greenhouse gases while making sure that electricity remains reliable and affordable.”

    10. What is Southern Company Doing about Climate Change? • Shift to Gas (Lower CO2 Emissions) • Install Non-emitting Generation • Coal Gasification • Sequester CO2 • Capture & Store • Research & Development -- Long Term, Global Solutions --

    11. Climate Change Technology Development Timeline Renewables ICGG TRIG Orlando FutureGen CCS Commercial? 20052010201520202025 CCS Demo Projects New Nuclear Retail and Generation Energy Conservation and Efficiency Improvements

    12. Key Takeaways • Improving environmental performance • Growth is good & it presents challenges • Committed to finding solutions
