Southern California Edison's plan to operate the Unit 2 reactor of its San Onofre nuclear plant in California at a lower capacity won't pose significant accident risks, according to an initial ruling from Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff.

The NRC will give the public 30 days to comment on the decision.
