Southern California Edison (SCE) announced June 7, 2013 that it will permanently retire Units 2 and 3 of its San Onofre nuclear plant. SCE concluded that continuing uncertainty about when or if San Onofre Unit 2 might return to service was not good for customers, investors or the need to plan for the region's long-term electricity needs. Safety, stewardship and community engagement will guide SCE as it partners with the community to make the San Onofre decommissioning a national model for the electric power industry.

Current Status

SCE formally notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) on June 12, 2013 that it had permanently ceased operation of Units 2 and 3 on June 7, 2013. The notification, called a Certification of Permanent Cessation of Power Operations, sets the stage for SCE to begin preparations for decommissioning. Decommissioning is a well-defined NRC process that involves transferring the used fuel into safe storage, followed by the removal and disposal of radioactive components and materials. Longer term, this process calls for reducing residual radioactivity to a level that supports termination of the NRC license.

Community Engagement Panel

We want the San Onofre decommissioning process to be managed in an inclusive, forward-thinking and responsible way. In particular, the current and previous owners of San Onofre are committed to creating an advisory Community Engagement Panel (CEP) to bring together diverse stakeholders and open a conduit of information and ideas between the owners and the public. The panel would ensure that all key interests are included and heard: Elected representatives of the surrounding cities and counties, the military, local environmentalists, business, labor, customer interests and academia.
