     Unfortunately, San Onofre is not online NOW to  meet the demand.
     Guess they'll have to fix the nuclear plant and be  ready for next

One  of the arguments made by Jordan Krueger is that "Even without the
San  Onofre nuclear  plant, there's enough power generating capacity  in
Southern California to keep the lights on even on the hottest days  of
the year."

News Link (August 10,  2012):



"California's  electricity grid operator issued a rare statewide alert on
Thursday warning  residents to curb power usage in coming days as a heat
wave threatens to  strain its already taxed network."

"CAISO is bracing for the heat wave  and struggling to compensate for the
loss of the 2,150-megawatt (MW) San  Onofre nuclear power plant. That
plant will be offline at least through the  end of the summer, following
a small radiation leak."

"The CAISO  warned earlier that San Onofre's prolonged outage increased
the possibility  of rolling blackouts in Southern California,
particularly in the event of  extreme weather or additional generation

So much for his  argument.
