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.



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. The meetings also allow the Panel and the public to provide input to PG&E as plans and a detailed cost estimate are being prepared for the Nuclear Decommissioning Cost Triennial Proceeding (NDCTP) filing with California Public Utilities Commission in 2019. Meetings will occur on the final Wednesday of each month until the NDCTP filing. During meeting times, you may watch the live stream.
