BRADENTON, Fla. - The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia tomorrow plans to sell $200 million of bond anticipation notes, the second of three short-term debt offerings totaling about $500 million to finance a portion of its pre-construction costs in what may be the first new nuclear power plant units constructed in the U.S. since the 1980s.

Tomorrow's sale will be the second this month for pre-construction financing of MEAG's 22.7% ownership interest in two new nuclear units expected to be built adjacent to the existing Vogtle Nuclear Power Plant near Augusta by Georgia Power Co.
