Parties Reaffirm Proposal to Retire and Replace Diablo

August 18, 2017

The decline in the cost of solar and wind – as well as the continued availability of low cost efficiency improvements – are key factors supporting the proposal to retire and replace the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant with GHG-free resources, as reiterated in this letter to the California Public Utilities Commission. The diverse organizations that form this coalition support the need for prompt action to initiate procurement of replacement resources in order to avoid an increase in emissions and to advance California’s bold greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction goals.
