PG&E’s Diablo Canyon closure plan clears first hurdle

Published Tuesday June 28

Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s plan to close the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant in 9 years cleared its first government hurdle Tue nontheless, despite pressure from opponents to shut it down sooner.

PG&E won a whole new lease from the Cali. State Lands Commission to keep the plant running through 2025 without first requiring a lengthy environmental review. The intake and outflow chutes for Diablo’s cooling system rest on tidelands leased from the state, and the current leases expire in 2018 and 2019.

On Tue the commission unanimously voted against requiring an environmental impact report after staff assured the commission’s voting members that one was not legally required.
