SOLANA BEACH (CBS 8) - Protesters are planning to voice their opposition to a proposal that would replace the shuttered San Onofre Power Plant.

Local officials, students, health professionals and clean energy companies are all expected to join demonstrations in Solana Beach on Tuesday.

The group is fighting a California public utilities plan to build a new, multi-billion dollar gas plant in Carlsbad. They say the proposal has been pushed forward by utilities without allowing competition from clean energy.
