ROSEMEAD, Calif., Oct. 29, 2015 — The San Onofre Community Engagement Panel will review a study of the economic benefits of decommissioning the San Onofre nuclear plant on Nov. 5 at the panel’s regular quarterly meeting in Oceanside. The study addresses the local, state and national economic impact of decommissioning the nuclear plant.
In addition, representatives from Southern California Edison, majority owner of San Onofre, will provide an update on plans to decommission the nuclear plant.
The public is invited to attend the meeting from 6-9 p.m. at the QLN Conference Center, 1938 Avenida Del Oro, Oceanside. Staffed information booths will be open from 5-6 p.m. There will be a public comment period and the meeting will be live-streamed via songscommunity.com.
The 18-member Community Engagement Panel was formed to advise the co-owners of the San Onofre nuclear plant on decommissioning the facility and to foster public education and involvement during decommissioning.
SCE announced in June 2013 that it would retire San Onofre Units 2 and 3, and had begun the process to decommission the facility. SCE has established core principles of safety, stewardship and engagement to guide decommissioning. For more information about SCE, visit songscommunity.com.
