Renewables & Nuclear Power In California

Wall Street Journal

Letter To The Editor
We believe that the state's broad goals of clean energy and environmental protection can be met, but only if done deliberately and sensibly. Specifically, we need balanced solutions that address renewables integration, greenhouse-gas reduction, new generation and a rate design that minimizes unfair cross subsidies between customer groups.

At the intersection of our state's reliability needs and environmental goals stands our San Onofre nuclear plant, which provides around-the-clock, emission-free electric power. It is crucial that we bring this plant back online before the next summer heat waves if possible. We are working under the oversight of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to make this happen as soon as it is safe to do so. (WSJ, 4/9/2013)
