The problems there focus on the plant's steam generators. Last year, federal regulators blamed the heavy tube wear on a botched computer analysis that they said misjudged how water and steam would flow in the reactors.

SCE has asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for permission to restart one of the reactors, Unit 2, and run it at reduced power in hopes of slowing or stopping tube damage.

A decision on the request is not expected until at least late April.

Overall, NRC records show investigators found wear from friction and vibration in 15,000 places, in varying degrees, in 3,401 tubes inside the plant's four generators, two in each reactor.

The Associated Press formula calculates an executive's total compensation during the last year by adding salary, bonuses, perks, above-market interest the company pays on deferred compensation, and the estimated value of stock and stock options awarded during the year. The AP formula does not count changes in the present value of pension benefits. That makes the AP total slightly different in most cases from the total reported by companies to the SEC.
