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.

Environmental group pushes for hearing on San Onofre restart

Environmental group pushes for hearing on San Onofre restart


The environmental group Friends of the Earth made its case to federal regulators Wednesday that Southern California Edison should be barred from restarting the San Onofre nuclear plant unless it goes through a trial-like hearing process.

The meeting Wednesday between Friends of the Earth and a U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission review board was the latest step in a dispute that has been going on for more than six months.

San Onofre has been closed for nearly a year because of unusual wear on tubes at the plant, which resulted in a small leak of radioactive steam last January. The tubes are part of four giant steam generators that Edison replaced in 2010 and 2011.
