San Onofre nuclear power plant: More dangerous than imagined
There is a new report on the devastating information recently disclosed by the NRC–that approximately 3,400 steam generator tubes have gone bad at San Onofre, a number nearly equal to as many tubes installed in Unit 2 and Unit 3 of the power plant. Despite this information, Edison is considering re-starting Unit 2 as early as August 2012.
CBG’s Dan Hirsch:
“This reveals a far greater problem than has been previously disclosed, and raises serious questions about whether it is safe to restart either unit.”
