PG&E responds to Diablo Canyon comments in CPUC filing

Posted: Updated:

Days after a "Coalition of Cities" in San Luis Obispo County filed a response to PG&E's joint proposal to phase out nuclear power at Diablo Canyon Power Plant, the utility has filed its response with the California Public Utilities Commission.

"The diverse parties behind the joint proposal, including labor and leading environmental groups, believe it represents the most appropriate and responsible path forward for supporting the state's energy vision. Most importantly, it reflects our strong commitment to supporting local employees as well as the community in transitioning to a future without Diablo Canyon Power Plant in operation," said Geisha Williams, president of electric at PG&E.

"We fully understand that elements of the joint proposal reflect important issues for the state and PG&E's customers. The near decade-long period ahead of us provides the time to plan and replace Diablo Canyon's energy with new GHG-free replacement resources. PG&E welcomes feedback on the agreement, the opportunity to respond, and the opportunity to continue our dialogue with stakeholders as it moves through the CPUC review process," Williams continued in a statement.

The plan also includes payments of nearly $50 million to offset declining tax revenues.
