SAN DIEGO - The operator and majority owner of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station announced today that it has asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to amend its license to allow it to restart one of its two reactors at 70 percent power.

Southern California Edison's draft license amendment seeks to change a technical section requiring structural integrity of steam generators from ''across the full range of normal operating conditions'' to compliance at 70 percent power. It also includes a promise that power would not exceed that amount, which equates to 3,438 megawatts thermal.
