Learn about the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel


The Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel was created to foster open and transparent dialogue between members of the local community and PG&E on topics regarding the decommissioning of Diablo Canyon Power Plant near Avila Beach, CA. Send your comment or question to the panel today.



Mission and purpose


The Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel will review information and provide direct input on behalf of the local community to PG&E on Diablo Canyon Power Plant decommissioning plans and activities.



Background


In 2016, PG&E announced plans for the closure plan for Diablo Canyon at the expiration of its Nuclear Regulatory Commission operating licenses in 2024-2025. PG&E will focus on continued safe and reliable operations at Diablo Canyon, while also preparing decommissioning plans that consider community input and meet regulatory requirements.



Meetings


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.


The Panel will help inform PG&E’s site-specific decommissioning plan on future land use and repurposing recommendations. The consideration of the plan will be the subject of an ongoing regulatory process that will begin with the filing of the Nuclear Decommissioning Cost Triennial Proceeding in December 2018 at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). PG&E plans, pending CPUC approval, to continue to engage with the panel and solicit input from the public on its plan during this multi-year review process.
