Taking Care of the Environment

Nuclear power plants like Diablo Canyon emit no greenhouse gasses during the production of electricity.

  • Diablo Canyon is located on one of the most scenic and habitat-rich coastlines in the country. It is surrounded by roughly 12,000 acres of land that is managed by PG&E and largely maintained in a natural state as a home to many species of plant and animal wildlife that thrive on land, as well as in the ocean and intertidal zones. PG&E’s responsible stewardship of this precious natural resource allows for scientists and others to explore its habitat and ecology.
  • Power produced at Diablo Canyon adds to the region’s energy diversity, reducing dependence on a single source of electricity.
