About the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel

PG&E created and launched the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel in 2018 to foster open and frequent dialogue between members of the local community and PG&E on matters related to DCPP decommissioning. Panelists are local community members from across San Luis Obispo County who were selected to broadly represent diverse community viewpoints. The DCDEP maintains an independent website which is located here.


Public meetings provide the opportunity to learn about the various aspects of the decommissioning process and allow the Panel and the public to provide input to PG&E. During meeting times, you may watch the live stream.
