Officials Mull Partial Restart of SoCal Nuclear Plant

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials will meet with Southern California Edison representatives in Laguna Hills on Friday night to discuss the utility's proposal for the limited restarting of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station near San Clemente.

NRC and Edison officials will discuss the plans to remedy undue wear on Unit 3 steam generator tubes installed in 2010 and 2011.

The plant, which is operated by Southern California Edison, has been shut for almost all of this year due to problems with steam tubes and other parts.
