Calif. Regulators OK Closure of Diablo Canyon, State's Last Nuke

"In a landmark decision, the California Public Utilities Commission has decided PG&E can close Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant in 2025 — and San Luis Obispo County still won’t get its much-desired $85 million mitigation settlement to support the community through the shutdown.

PG&E will get more than expected for its employee retention and retraining program, however.

The commission unanimously voted to approve the application Thursday, saying the utility company presented a reasonable pathway toward a more energy-efficient future."
