The San Onofre nuclear reactors run by Southern California Edison, a subsidiary of Edison International, pose a significant threat to the safety of Californians. The reactors have been shut down since January following a tube failure that released radiation. Subsequent investigations have shown that nearly brand-new steam generators in both reactors have unprecedented levels of damage – damage that could have resulted in a massive release of radiation.
Edison International’s CEO, Ted Craver, once said that if and when to restart the San Onofre nuclear reactors would be the biggest decision he makes as CEO. Send him your note today urging him to make the right decision – Protect Southern California and keep the San Onofre reactors shut down.
Sign the petition: Urge Ted Craver to do the right thing for our safety and the economic health of Southern California.
- CEO, Edison International
The crippled San Onofre nuclear reactors pose an unacceptable risk to the safety of Californians and are a bad investment of ratepayers’ money. The aging and currently crippled plant will require millions – perhaps billions – in repairs and retrofits if they are to meet current state and federal regulations. Even if the San Onofre reactors are restarted now – a dangerous gamble with critically flawed equipment installed – these mandatory retrofits will also require extended outages of the reactors.
Southern Californians deserve safe, reliable, affordable energy. San Onofre is none of those things. Mr. Craver, you have stated that the decision if and when to restart San Onofre may be the biggest decision you make as CEO of Edison International. Make the right choice. Shut down San Onofre permanently.
