Its not Georgia specifically, but Georgia power, subsidiary of the much larger southern company that spent a lot of time and money trying to fight these regulations .Sounds like Georgia was sitting pretty letting their power infrastructure rot and now is getting trout slapped by stricter regulations. Why isn't every state losing tons of power plants because of these regulations (I haven't actually double checked this)?
Its not as big of a deal as it seems, and rates aren't going to increase suddenly right away anyway. Pull a bit more power from plant vogtle, which is the nuclear plant being upgraded ( naturally southern company screwed that up), and buy more natural gas power from their other sister company southern power.
