This consultant report was prepared in response to Assembly Bill 1632 (“AB 1632”- Blakeslee, Chapter 722, Statutes of 2006), which directed the California Energy Commission to assess the potential vulnerability of the state’s two operating nuclear power plants to a major disruption due to a seismic event or plant aging; to assess the impacts of such a disruption on system reliability, public safety, and the economy; to assess the costs and impacts from nuclear waste accumulating at these plants; and to evaluate other major issues related to the future role of these plants in the state’s energy portfolio. The report considers the seismic vulnerabilities of the nuclear plant sites, structures, and spent fuel storage facilities and the vulnerability of the plants to age-related degradation. The report also considers the impacts of a major disruption at the plants on the reliability of California’s transmission grid and power supply. Finally, the report considers a number of policy areas related to California’s operating nuclear plants, including the cost, land use, and local economic impacts of nuclear waste accumulation at the plant sites; the economic and environmental tradeoffs among alternative power supply options; and potential implications of renewing the operating licenses of the nuclear plants.
