NRC Says Decision Date on San Onofre Restart To Be Determined

May 20 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said its decision on when it expects to tell parties of its intent to rule on whether it is safe to allow Edison International to restart a nuclear reactor in southern California is “to be determined.”

The commission also said it remains “to be determined” when it expects to issue a decision on Edison’s license amendment request and a final decision regarding the restart of San Onofre Unit 2, according to a posting on its website.

Edison’s San Onofre plant, located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, has been shut since January 2012 after the Rosemead, California-based utility discovered unusual wear on steam generator tubes. Last week, Allison Macfarlane, the chairman of the NRC, said a ruling on whether San Onofre can restart at reduced power to avoid shaking of damaged pipes won’t happen until late June.
