Transcript

The closure of the San Onofre Nuclear power plant has opened up a number of new questions. Among them are what the process of decommissioning will entail....and will ratepayers ever see any kind of refund?

A meeting last night and another on Thursday are taking steps toward answering those questions.

Last night was the first meeting of a 18 member decommissioning advisory panel for San Onofre. And tomorrow the owners of the closed plant will meet with ratepayer advocates to try to hammer out a financial settlement for ratepayers.
