Victory: Edison closes San Onofre for good (updated with press conference)

Posted Jun. 7, 2013 / Posted by: Adam Russell

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Here is a statement from Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth, on the announced closure of the San Onofre Generating Station.

“This is very good news for the people of Southern California. We have long said that these reactors are too dangerous to operate and now Edison has agreed. The people of California now have the opportunity to move away from the failed promise of dirty and dangerous nuclear power and replace it with the safe and clean energy provided by the sun and the wind.”
