Community, labor and anti-nuclear activists will be speaking out at the California Public Utility Commission
on Thursday August 23 at 9:00 AM. They will call for a full study of the economic cost of the San Onofre
Nuclear Power station which has been shut down temporarily due to massive health and safety problems including
leaking radioactive water from faulty tubes at the plant. We want the plant closed permanently and for the utility
to pay for the costs instead of the ratepayer.
The chair of the Commission Michael Peevey still refuses to do a full study of the economic costs of this shutdown
and the utility controlled commission has forced the people of California and rate payers to pay over
$20 billion for the construction and maintenance of the two nuclear plants in California.
Southern California Edison which is the major owner of the San Onofre Nuclear Plant wants rate payers to
also pay over $60 million for earthquake studies to keep the plants open.
The people can no longer afford to subsidize the nuclear industry and instead needs to have a major program
for alternative energy sources including solar.
We are also demanding the removal of all utility controlled members of the commission including chair Michael
Peevey who has taken international trips paid for by the utilities and is a former executive from Southern California Edison.

Initial List Of Speakers will include
Ace Hoffman, San Clemente Green, Nuke Free North County (San Diego)
Gene Stone, Residents Organized For Safe Environment (ROSE)
Umi Hagitani, No Nukes Action Committee
Speaker from OSF EJWG Occupy SF Environmental Justice Working Group
