Corp. Comm. to examine safety at Palo Verde today

 .

.

The Arizona Corporation Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing Tuesday into safety procedures at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station.

The hearing comes after the disaster at a nuclear power plant in Japan earlier this month.

Representatives including plant manager Arizona Public Service Co. are expected to be present to answer questions from state regulators.

The Corporation Commission says members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have been invited to participate.

Palo Verde is owned by a consortium of power companies and supplies electricity to some 4 million customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California.
