Letters: San Onofre or solar?

May 06, 2012

Re "San Onofre may never run full bore," May 4

Regarding the $55 million to $65 million cost of returning the San Onofre nuclear power plant to service: How many homes could that money outfit with solar panels? How much energy would that expenditure put into the grid? What tax program benefits could Southern California Edison draw from funding solar installations?

What would the return on investment be for such a project? San Onofre's federal license expires in only 10 years.

Considering alternatives and opportunity costs, the power plant's outage could be a tremendous opportunity for alternative energy sources.
