A California utility agreed Monday to seek a new home, possibly Arizona, for its nuclear waste, but Arizona Public Service Co. officials say they won’t take it.

APS operates Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station west of Phoenix on behalf of its seven owners, and officials there said they will not agree to take fuel from California’s shuttered San Onofre Generating Station in north San Diego.

Such a move would require approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and APS won’t ask for that approval, making the proposal a dead end, officials said.
