Recommend the Commissioners:

  • Urge the Nuclear Regulator Commission to not allow restart of San Onofre until and unless Southern California Edison completes a license amendment process with a public, transparent hearing to determine the safety of the restart plan.
  • Urge the California Public Utilities Commission to:
    • Expedite the OII [Order of Investigation] regarding the financial status and viability of San Onofre to protect the ratepayers; and
    • Not hold ratepayers responsible for errors which led to faulty replacement steam generators being installed, outage expenses, and the need for repair expenses; and
    • Provide additional incentives and programs to support the rapid installation of new power generation, power savings, and grid stabilizing technologies; and
    • Prioritize efficiency and renewable energy resources whenever possible.
