San Onofre nuke plant likely offline for summer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The damaged San Onofre nuclear power plant in Southern California is likely to remain sidelined until at least the end of August while investigators probe excessive wear in tubing that carries radioactive water, the plant's operator said Thursday.
State officials have warned of possible rotating blackouts if a heat wave hits while the twin-reactor plant is offline, and utilities have been scrambling to find replacement power as a precaution, including restarting two retired natural gas-fired plants in Orange County.
