About the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel

 

PG&E created the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel (DCDEP) in 2018 to foster open and frequent dialogue with the community on matters related to the DCPP deactivation. Panelists are community members from across San Luis Obispo County who represent diverse viewpoints. Visit the DCDEP’s independent website.

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.
