Diablo Canyon Unit Two reactor running again

PG&E says Unit Two at Diablo Canyon Power Plant is up and running again after almost a week of being down.

They say there was a flashover event on the non-nuclear side of the plant. That means there was an unintended arc between two pieces of electrical equipment.

The reactor is designed to shut down in the case of an electrical disturbance.

The lightning conductor has been replaced.

Unit One at Diablo Canyon is still operating at full power.
