Southern Californians Urged To Conserve Power

ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — State energy officials plan to unveil an electricity conservation campaign for Southern California in light of forecasts of a hotter-than-normal summer and the continuing outage of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.

Grid managers from the California Independent System Operator, the California Energy Commission and Southern California Edison plan a news conference Wednesday morning at a control center in Alhambra.

San Onofre is the largest power plant in the region. Both of its reactors have been shut down since discovery of problems in tubes that carry radioactive water.
