They will discuss the new spent fuel storage system at Diablo Canyon Power Plant

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel (DCDEP) will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, May 25, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. The public meeting will be held at the County Government Center in San Luis Obispo and via Zoom. The in-person meeting will include an open house from 5 to 6 p.m., where members of the public can view exhibits and talk with Panel members and PG&E representatives.

The meeting agenda topics include:

• In-depth presentation from PG&E on new system selected to transfer and store all remaining spent fuel at DCPP; dry storage vendor Orano USA will also present

• Review of, and respond to, public comments and questions about the new system

• Briefing from the California Energy Commission on the selection process of the new spent fuel storage system

This is the second in a series of public meetings addressing the new spent fuel storage at DCPP. The purpose of this meeting is to have a follow-up discussion on the new storage system and respond to the questions and comments solicited during April’s public meeting. A community open house that will include tours of the Diablo Canyon Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation — where all spent fuel is stored in the interim — will be held in June.
