San Onofre Operator Requests to Restart Reactor

So the Edison Plan is to reduce safety standards
so they can turn that damaged reactor back on
and keep San Onofre in the rate base.


"No Significant Hazard Consideration" ?? Really ??

What could go wrong?
It's only a nuclear power reactor.

In the middle of overdue earthquake zone.

With the worst safety record of all the reactors in the U.S.

With seriously damaged steam generators.

With the ability to turn the population of Southern California homeless in hours.

Feds Inspect San Onofre's Cyber Security Training Amid Years of Employee Complaints

Read these quotes for yourself:

“The plant’s largest components — steam generators — are just two years old and represent the safest, most efficient 21st century machinery.”
(Story has been removed from - Source: MarketWatch)
SONGS Chief Nuclear Officer Pete Dietrich Jan 10 2012.
The installation is “a major milestone in the station’s history,” said Ross Ridenoure, Southern California Edison senior vice president and chief nuclear officer. “We’re committed to making sure it’s done right.”
January 28th, 2009
Edison President John R. Fielder said new steam generators are cheaper for ratepayers than building new power plants or buying power on the open market.
.... read the last line of that article
"SDG&E executives say they have no confidence in Edison's cost estimates and contend the company's plan to cut holes in reactor containment buildings to remove the old steam generators would compromise the safety of those structures."
The new steam generators are designed to last longer, said Mike Wharton, manager of the steam-generator replacement project.
“They are designed for 40 years,” he said. “We expect we’ll actually be able to get 60 years out of them … better materials, better design. You learn over the course of years what works well and what doesn’t, and you try to build it into the next generation.”

Correction on the above comment:
We know there have been any blackouts with San Onofre Down.
Should be:
We know there have NOT been any blackouts with San Onofre Down.

We don't know what is going on with the FBI investigation.
We don't know what is in the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Report.
We don't know what other documents and reports about the RSG's are being withheld.

We know that Edison likes to spend our ratepayer money recklessly,
$54 Million a month for over a year and they want even more of our $$$.
We know the Chinese have been able to hack into our electric grid and more.
We know that Edison thinks that 70 = 100.
We know that Edison wants us, and the NRC,
to look the other way while they experiment with the damaged RSG in Unit 2.
We know there is no credible, safe evacuation plan.
We know there have been any blackouts with San Onofre Down.
So why this insane risk of our safety and health and why this out of control rip off of ratepayer money?

More Details Emerge About Edison's Actions Before Replacing Generators At San Onofre

What is worse? That Edison installed defective Steam Generators and KNEW they were defective? Or that Edison is CLUELESS about how defective the equipment they design and install is. Sorry Edison, either way you look very very bad and even criminal. Thank You Senator Boxer, don't back down from protecting the public.
All of our public leaders and elected officials need to join Senator Boxer and Rep. Markey in demanding a full investigation and license amendment hearing. Edison and MHI need to release all documents. They already had all of their "competitors- Areva/Westinghouse" look at all that classified info. I don't think we have to worry that anyone else out there is planing on constructing defective steam generators. Why the secrecy?

Congressman Vargas Joins Call For Public Evidentiary Hearing To Restart San Onofre

Thank You Congressman Vargas!
Any public leader who is not doing the same will have their name on a Fukushima disaster here in the U.S. - Better listen up public leaders, get on the right side of history and safety for the public that you represent.

Hundreds Attend Public Forum On San Onofre's Future

If SC Edison is truly putting safety first then they should have nothing to hide and have no problem whatsoever with being put under oath, turning over all documents, data and records. We, the public, deserve data that is not loaded with missing or blacked out sections. What are they hiding?
I have zero confidence in SC Edison or the NRC unless they they go thru the full, transparent Adjudicatory Hearing and License Amendment process, including evidentiary hearing with sworn testimony and cross-examination which include experts independent of the NRC, Edison and the nuclear power industry.
Ratepayers are being charged $54 Million a month for this debacle. That is unacceptable! Imagine how much safe, secure, job producing, Roof Top Solar that would buy!

San Onofre: Design Caused Decay

It seems that they (NRC & Edison) are equally mystified.
They need more time and information and investigation.
So far, They are pointing the finger at a computer issue with Mitsubishi.
No one is man enough to stand up and take any responsibility.
Gee, those computers are really handy, aren't they.
Should we really trust SCEdison with a nuclear power plant if they are so
confused and mystified by this?
Can we trust the NRC to pay attention and regulate?

Roundtable: San Onofre Offline, Sunrise Powerlink And Teacher Union Concessions

We can not TRUST SC Edison,
they have proven that given the CHANCE,
they will GAMBLE with our SAFETY.
And the NRC is playing right into their hand.
