The San Onofre nuclear power plant will be permanently shut down, Southern California Edison announced today. Two of the units have been shut down since January 2012 after a small leak was detected.
The power plant "has served this region for over 40 years, but we have concluded that the continuing uncertainty about when or if [it] might return to service was not good for our customers, our investors, or the need to plan for our region's long-term electricity needs," Ted Craver, chairman of Edison International, said in a statement
