Submission + - Decommissioning San Onofre may take decades (latimes.com)

gkndivebum writes: Southern California Edison has elected to decommission the San Onofre nuclear plant after a failed effort to upgrade the steam generation system. "Nuclear economics" is the reason stated for the proposed decommissioning. Other utilities operating nuclear power plants in the US likely face similar decisions when it comes to weighing the costs of upgrading older facilities. Allowing the reactors to remain in "safe storage" for a period of up to 60 years will allow for radioactive decay and lower radiation exposure for the workers performing the demolition.
