Diablo Canyon Power Plant Closure Planning
The County is working with community stakeholders, local cities, school districts, Chambers of Commerce, and PG&E to look at options that would reduce the economic impacts our community will face due to the closure of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. Together, the stakeholders will guide a project that will develop an economic strategy intended to help reduce the impact of the closure throughout our region. They will hire a consultant for an economic analysis and the development of long-term economic strategies.
For more information about the County's role in this important effort, contact the County Administrative Office at (805) 781-5011 or send them an email.
