Deal pending for refunds tied to closed nuke plant

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Consumer groups and two Southern California utilities are meeting behind closed doors to discuss who pays for costs tied to the shuttered San Onofre nuclear power plant.

With the plant now closed for good, it's expected utility customers will see refunds for power they will never receive.

The question is how much they could be.

Southern California Edison and minority owner San Diego Gas & Electric Co. have been negotiating with consumer advocates to divide a long list of expenses from equipment to replacement power.

They are scheduled to meet Thursday in San Francisco.

The plant between San Diego and Los Angeles was closed permanently by Edison last year.

The plant hadn't produced electricity since January 2012, after a small radiation leak led to the discovery of heavily damaged tubing.
