California utility to close Diablo Canyon nuclear power reactors by 2025

Plans to close the last active nuclear plant in California have been laid for 2025. The Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in Avila Beach, CA is scheduled to shut down.

Update 6/23 12:24 PM: PG&E cites Community Choice Aggregation as a factor in their decision. Please see this press release from PG&E, second paragraph.

“The closing of the two reactors will leave California without any nuclear power plants after April 2025. The utility, Pacific Gas & Electric, said it would replace the nuclear power generated there with renewable energy projects and energy efficiency initiatives.”
