CONSUMER ALERT: CPUC Public Hearing on SONGS, Feb. 21 in Costa Mesa

Join TURN in Demanding Immediate Rate Reductions for Edison Customers

San Onofre is Down, Rates Should Be Too!

Join TURN to demand immediate rate relief for customers of Edison. Tell the CPUC: Don’t Make Customers Pay for Edison’s Mistakes

What: California Public Utilities Commission Public Participation Hearing on San Onofre

When: Thursday, February 21, 2013, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. AND 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Where: Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Ave., Costa Mesa

Why: The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) went offline in January after water leaks in Unit 3’s steam generator tubes were detected. Hundreds of other steam tubes are also compromised in both nuclear units.

  • Rising costs for replacement power are an unfortunate result of Edison’s mistakes
  • The CPUC allowed Edison to begin charging customers for replacing the old steam generators with the new, defective ones that cost $665 million.
  • Utility companies must pay for their mistakes out of profits, not rates.
  • Customers should not pay a single penny for costs incurred to own an expensive, inoperable nuclear plant.

Can’t attend? Send the CPUC a message: SONGS is Down, Rates Should Be Too
