Shock horror for the nuclear lobby, Southern California can get by without San Onofre nuclear energy

Officials urge conservation as California prepares for summer sans San Onofre nuclear plant 89.3 KPCC, By Ed Joyce | Jun 27, 2012 Utility officials in Southern California say conservation is more important than ever as the San Onofre nuclear plant sits dormant, but anti-nuclear activists are insisting that the plant’s energy isn’t needed…… anti-nuclear activists say the summer will show the region can get by without San Onofre.

Gene Stone, with a San Clemente-based anti-nuclear group, says conservation can meet energy demand even with a permanent shutdown of the plant. He says Edison should use the “half-billion dollars” it’s collected from customers for energy conservation to create a useful
substitute.

“That money should be divided up between the appropriate county and city agencies and do some real effective conservation,” said Stone.

The agency which manages the state’s power grid says that, even without the nuclear plant’s energy (enough for 1.4 million homes), Southern California will get by this summer without major blackouts. http://www.scpr.org/news/2012/06/27/33000/officials-urge-conservation-state-prepares-summer-/
