California Public Utilities Commission: San Onofre OII Vote HearThursday, August 2nd 9:00 AM
505 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco
CPUC Main Auditorium
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will vote whether to do a special investigation called an OII(Order Instituting Investigation) for San Onofre on August 2nd at the CPUC’s headquarters in San Francisco at 9:00 AM during their regular meeting.
What’s at stake couldn’t be more important. The CPUC has the power to close San onofre on the grounds that it is no longer economically viable to run. The politically appointed commissioners will be under immense pressure to allow Southern California Edison (SoCal Ed), the company that owns San Onofre, to continue with the status quot. In fact, the chairman of the CPUC, Michael Peevey, also happens to be the former head of SoCal Ed. There has been major pressure for Peevey to step down because his role in protecting PG&E from stronger actions as a result of the 2009 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion. At a minimum he should either step aside on this issue due to a conflict of interest or vote for the investigation.
