PHOENIX (AP) — Utility regulators in Arizona set a Tuesday hearing with the operators of the nation's largest nuclear power plant to assess safety procedures there in the wake of Japan's nuclear accident.
The hearing before the Arizona Corporation Commission will focus on the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Wintersburg, located about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix.
The triple-reactor plant supplies electricity to about 4 million customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California.
The nuclear crisis in Japan also has prompted the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to launch a review of U.S. nuclear plants.
Arizona Public Service, the utility that runs the plant on behalf of a consortium of power companies in the four states, has already briefed Arizona legislators on the plant's safety procedures.
