A runner passes by the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant on April 6, 2012.
The San Onofre has been offline for most of the year. Southern California Edison, the plant's operator, shut it down in January citing safety concerns.
But this morning the company submitted a plan to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to restart part of the plant.
KPCC's Ed Joyce joins the show to update us on the status of the plant.
