San Onofre Nuclear Plant Closing Permanently

The nuclear power station at San Onofre is going to be shut down permanently. 

Edison International says it is closing the crippled San Diego county facility because of the continuing uncertainty about when it would be able to restart two of the units taken off line in January 2012.  That was when it was discovered tubes that carried radioactive steam were wearing down at an unusal rate.

1,100 layoffs are expected as a result of the closure.
