The Georgia Public Service Commission decided on Thursday to approve further construction on two nuclear reactors, according to U.S. News and World Report.

"Investing in clean, sustainable energy infrastructure is a worthwhile endeavor that will have a positive impact as well," said Gov. Nathan Deal, according to the report.

Officials said the vote means Georgia residents will see an increase in their power bills beginning in 2021, the report said.

Georgia Power estimates the reactors will cost $12.2 billion and will not be finished until 2021 and 2022, according to WSB-TV in Atlanta.

Georgia Power will be held accountable for any construction delays, the report said.
