Unit 2 at Diablo Canyon Power Plant returns to full power

Officials with PG&E say Unit 2 at Diablo Canyon Power Plant has returned to full power.

An electrical disturbance caused the unit to go off-line safely last week.

Officials say an investigation found the electrical disturbance was caused by a flashover event during routine maintenance including pressure washing, or hot washing, of electrical insulators near a lightning arrestor located on the non-nuclear side of the plant.

Officials say Unit 1 was not affected.
