SAN DIEGO – A high-profile San Diego attorney is speaking out after he was cursed out while cameras were rolling by the head of the California Public Utilities Commission.
The San Onofre nuclear plant has been shut down, and the final bill for dismantling it will be a big one. That was the topic inside a recent evidentiary hearing of the CPUC in San Francisco.
Mike Aguirre, former San Diego City Attorney, was representing a ratepayer who was upset about a proposed settlement between utility companies and consumer advocacy groups requiring ratepayers to cover $3.3 billion of the $4.7 billion bill to decommission the nuclear plant. The plant was retired in 2013 after the failure of several steam generators.
