What will closing Diablo Canyon mean for SLO County?

Hosted by

The last nuclear power plant operating in the state of California is set to shut down in 2025. Located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Luis Obispo County, Diablo Canyon has delivered electricity since 1985 and employs roughly 1,500 people. This week, U.S. Representative Salud Carbajal introduced a bill to help mitigate the economic blow Diablo’s closure will have on the county by incentivizing clean energy businesses to move in.
