The troubled San Onofre nuclear power plant in Southern California is closing, after an epic 16-month battle over whether the twin reactors could
be safely returned to service, officials announced Friday.
Operator Southern California Edison said in a statement it will retire the twin reactors because uncertainty about the future of the plant, which was
facing a tangle of regulatory hurdles and investigations.
Well here is some good news. I live here and there has been a lot of uproar about restarting the plant. It seems that the citizen action and
hearings that took place last month did some good. The moved the hearings up to Northern California to try to keep away the residents most affected.
They weren't going to televise them and there was a resident uproar that forced the Commission to relent.The plant will be shuttered now.
