The County officially has a seat at the table as Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) prepares to decommission Diablo Canyon Power Plant.
Trevor Keith, a division manager for the County Administrative Office, was one of 11 SLO County residents selected from a pool of 105 applicants to serve on the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel. He will serve on the panel along with former County Supervisor Frank Mecham (District 1).
“Local public health and safety remain our top priorities and I plan to serve on this committee with those in mind,” Keith said. “I’m proud to serve my community in this capacity during this very important and unprecedented time in our county’s history.”
PG&E announced the panel last week. Keith, along with the other 10 panel members, will provide input as PG&E prepares a plan for decommissioning the Diablo Canyon Power Plant. The panel members were selected to represent the broad and diverse stakeholder viewpoints surrounding the power plant.
Keith has served the County in several capacities for about 11 years. He has served as a division manager for the County Administrative Office for more than a year and had previously served as several roles for the County Planning Department.
Keith also previously served as a part-time lecturer for Cal Poly’s City and Regional Planning Department and received the Top 20 Under 40 Award in 2012 for his community service.
Keith holds a bachelor’s degree in ecology and systematic biology and a master’s degree in city and regional planning, both from Cal Poly. He is also a graduate of the Leadership SLO program.
