SONGS Seismic Program


In 2008, the California Energy Commission (CEC) published the AB 1632 Report, with recommendations for SCE to conduct seismic hazard research in the areas around SONGS. A plan was developed to conduct on and off shore work to provide new geologic and seismic information relevant to SONGS' seismic setting. The research plan was approved, with CPUC authorization to begin work at the end of 2011. With the decision to retire SONGS, the CPUC approved a scope reduction for the research project. The Planned Projects Menu has been updated to reflect cancelled projects.
