Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) today released the following statement on PG&E’s plan to close the Diablo Canyon Power Plant in 2025:
“PG&E’s plan to close the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant and transition to renewable energy is welcome news.
“With this announcement, all four of California’s large nuclear plants are either already decommissioned or will be in the coming years. I’m fully supportive of PG&E’s plan to shut down both of Diablo Canyon’s reactors by 2025, and I’m especially pleased to see an agreement between environmental groups and those who represent the plant’s employees.
“I look forward to working with PG&E to find safe storage for the leftover nuclear waste and prepare it for disposal.”
