Solana Beach Looks At Issuing Letter Of Concern Over San Onofre

Thursday, April 26, 2012

By Maureen Cavanaugh, Diana Crofts-Pelayo, Patty Lane, Peggy Pico

The San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant has been out of commission since January and there is a movement to keep it closed or phase it out completely.

Earlier this week, the city of Irvine in Orange County voted to send a letter to federal regulators opposing the relicensing of the plant. Solana Beach officials are urged to follow Irvine’s lead and vote to oppose relicensing San Onofre.

A rally by anti-nuclear activists is planned this weekend at the plant.

Nuclear energy consultant Arnie Gundersen spoke on KPBS Midday Edition and said relicensing could take as long as 10 years. The ultimate decision about whether to keep the plant comes from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


We look at a current movement underway to keep San Onofre permanently shutdown.
