Background information (so you can catch up)

Your next steps:


  • San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) has not generated any power since 1/31/2012 after an emergency shutdown and radiation leak, the failure due to design mistakes made by Edison and their subcontractor, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
  • Ratepayers continue to pay for SONGS just like an operating plant.
  • Plus we have been paying for power not produced by the plant.
  • The CPUC started an investigation into the failure in 2012.
  • The utilities want to abort the investigation into their failure and then have ratepayers pay $3.3B to bail them out.
  • Instead, ratepayers should see about a 10% REDUCTION in rates, since power from the plant averages 167% market price, and it comprised 10% to 20% of power used.
  • The proposed settlement was negotiated in secret and without all official parties to the proceeding allowed to participate, to bail out wall street investors on the backs of ratepayers.

  • See Shut San Onofre for information on our fight to close the plant. We won, but now we have to deal with this ridiculous settlement.
