Letter shows Edison anticipated problems with San Onofre generators

Letter shows Edison anticipated problems with San Onofre generators: Sen. Barbara Boxer, who released the 2004 letter, says it shows the company misled regulators on the extent of difference between the old and new equipment.

A letter from a Southern California Edison executive shows the company became concerned about the potential for serious design flaws in replacement steam generators at the San Onofre nuclear plant as early as 2004.
