Southern California Edison is closing the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station

Southern California Edison announces they are “retiring” the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in a press release posted on the company website.

Chairman and COE Ted Craver says “SONGS has served this region for over 40 years … but we have concluded that the continuing uncertainty about when or if SONGS might return to service was not good for our customers, our investors, or the need to plan for our region’s long-term electricity needs.”

Reactors 2 and 3 have been shut down since January 2012. Reactor 2 was taken off line for routine maintenance and reactor 3 was shut when a steam generator malfunctioned.

Authorities are looking for the driver of a pickup truck that crashed on the 5 freeway then ran off leaving his severely hurt 4-year-old son behind. At around 8:00 PM last Sunday 40-year-old Angelo Fabiani Arroyo crashed his 2004 Nisan Titan while driving south on the five near Rosecrans. His truck slammed into a guardrail and palm tree then came to a stop on its side dangling off of a retaining wall. It’s thought that Arroyo tried to free his son causing the 4-year-old to fall at least 10-feet hitting his head. The toddler is in the hospital with severe head trauma. Anyone with any info on Arroyo’s whereabouts should call California Highway Patrol at 619-220-5492.

onofreSAN ONOFRE, Calif. — U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials are scheduled to meet with Southern California Edison executives Wednesday to discuss proposed license amendments that would allow the utility to restart the troubled San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station at 70 percent power.

No decision on a restart will be made at the meeting in Rockville, Md., according to the NRC.

Edison’s draft license amendment seeks to change a technical section requiring structural integrity of steam generators from “across the full range of normal operating conditions” to compliance at 70 percent power. It also includes a promise that power would not exceed that amount, which equates to 3,438 megawatts thermal.

Another license section, which currently states that the reactors are allowed to operate at 100 percent power, would be changed to 70 percent power, or 2,406.6 megawatts thermal.

Edison requested that the NRC rule on the proposed amendments by May 24…

San Onofre restart may happen without public hearing

San Onofre restart may happen without public hearing

fox5sandiego.com

The operator of the troubled San Onofre nuclear plant might request a license amendment before restarting the plant through an expedited process that would not require public hearings before a restart.

Southern California Edison said Friday that it has requested a meeting with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to discuss the possible license amendment. The NRC has not yet responded.

Also Friday, a special NRC panel heard arguments from Edison and Friends of the Earth, an environmental group that has pushed for the commission to require a license amendment with a full trial-like public hearing process before deciding whether to allow the plant to fire up again.

san-onofre-nuclear-plant-20120315The panel did not rule on the issue Friday, and that proceeding is separate from the one that would take place if Edison submits a license amendment request.

The plant has been out of service for more than a year because of unusual…
