PG&E takes Diablo Canyon Unit 2 offline for maintenance

Unit 2 at Diablo Canyon Power Plant is offline.

PG&E took the reactor offline to perform scheduled maintenance on electrical equipment located on the non-nuclear side of the plant.

The planned outage will allow workers to clean the unit's lightning arrestors. That can only be done safely when electricity is not being generated.

Similar work was recently performed on Unit 1. That reactor is now back at full power.
