- 2012-10-09 Press Release – No risky restart says public at NRC meeting in Dana Point
No risky restart says public at today’s NRC meeting on San Onofre. NRC License amendment process and adjudicatory evidentiary hearing demanded to ensure safety.
Edison’s plan to restart the Unit 2 nuclear reactor safely is to watch for radiation leaks. That’s not a safety plan. That’s a nuclear experiment.
Restarting San Onofre with the the most defective steam generators in the nation is a recipe for nuclear disaster. We just went through nine months and a hot summer without any nuclear power — why take the risk when we don’t need the energy?

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.”
