Decision on Diablo Canyon Power Plant closure put on hold until January

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The California Public Utilities Commission will table a discussion regarding a proposal to ease the local impact of Diablo Canyon Power Plant’s closure. The discussion has been rescheduled for January.

County officials said it's not clear at this time why the decision was put on hold.

The proposed agreement is meant to safeguard local public health, safety and economic stability.

PG&E plans to close Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in 2025. The plant won’t be fully decommissioned for years afterward. In November 2016, the County, cities, and schools reached a multimillion dollar settlement agreement with PG&E to ease the local impacts of the plant’s closure.
