Aug 20 Southern California Edison Co,
a subsidiary of California power company Edison International
, said it plans to cut about 33 percent of jobs at its
San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
The company said it plans to reduce the workforce at the
plant by 730 employees to 1,500 from the fourth quarter.
Strict California environmental and regulatory standards
coupled with a greater financial investment to replace aging
infrastructure had increased the overall cost of delivering
electricity to customers, the company said in a statement.
The 2,150-megawatt San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is
located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego.
