Motion calls for rate cut for San Onofre closure

The Division of Ratepayer Advocates says Southern California Edison should give up about $600 million in rates for the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear station.

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California regulators are being asked to immediately remove hundreds of millions of dollars from utility customer bills because the San Onofre nuclear power plant is being shut down permanently.

A motion filed Tuesday with the Public Utilities Commission says it's unreasonable to charge customers for a plant that doesn't generate electricity.

The motion by the commission's Division of Ratepayer Advocates says operator Southern California Edison should give up about $600 million in rates, and minority owner San Diego Gas & Electric should chop about $185 million.

The motion says some of those funds could be retained for security and plant safety.

SCE corporate parent Edison International announced this month it will close the plant for good after a long fight over safety.

San Onofre hasn't produced power since January 2012.
