The public is invited to attend the first meeting on March 25 of a new Community Engagement Panel (CEP) formed to advise on decommissioning the San Onofre nuclear plant. The meeting will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at the San Clemente Community Center, 100 N. Calle Seville, San Clemente.
Southern California Edison (SCE) and the co-owners of the nuclear plant established the CEP to serve as a conduit of information between the owners and the public throughout decommissioning. The CEP is based on the guiding principles of safety, stewardship and engagement established by San Onofre’s owners to decommission the nuclear plant.
“Public engagement is essential to our goal to decommission San Onofre in a transparent and inclusive way,” said Chris Thompson, SCE vice president of Decommissioning. The first CEP meeting will include an overview of plans to dismantle the facility in 15 to 20 years, as well as a public comment period. Members of the public also may sign up on the plant’s website to receive regular e-mail updates about San Onofre’s decommissioning.
The chairman of the 18-member CEP is David G. Victor, a University of California, San Diego professor and expert on energy markets. Panel representatives include the American Nuclear Society, California State Parks, Camp Pendleton, Capistrano Unified School District, Coalition to Decommission San Onofre, Ocean Institute, Orange County Coastkeeper, Orange County Sheriff’s Department, organized labor, South Orange County Economic Coalition and the University of California, Irvine. Also represented are the boards of supervisors for Orange County and San Diego and the cities of Dana Point, Oceanside, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.CEP updates will be available on www.songscommunity.com, along with information about CEP members and the decommissioning process, including Nuclear Regulatory Commission oversight. The current owners of San Onofre are SCE, San Diego Gas &Electric and the city of Riverside. The city of Anaheim is a previous owner. Current and previous owners are responsible for decommissioning.
