The future of Diablo Canyon Power Plant
Status of continued operations at Diablo Canyon Power Plant
PG&E is scheduled to discontinue its power operations at Diablo Canyon upon the expiration of the Unit 1 and Unit 2 operating licenses, in November 2024 and August 2025, respectively.
In September of 2022, Governor Newsom signed legislation seeking to extend operations at DCPP past its current license period to ensure electricity reliability and combat climate change as California continues toward its clean energy future.
PG&E is on two concurrent tracks: pursuing continued operations through relicensing while continuing to plan for the eventual decommissioning of the power plant.
Stay informed through the resources below. You may also contact PG&E with questions or input at email@example.com.
