Statement from American Nuclear Society President Steven Nesbit and Executive Director and CEO Craig Piercy:

“We applaud Gov. Newsom’s decision to reevaluate the premature closures of the Diablo Canyon nuclear units in 2024 and 2025. Events over the past months and years have made it increasingly evident that Diablo Canyon has an essential role to play in California's clean and secure energy future. Diablo Canyon, which generates approximately 10% of California’s in-state electricity, is needed in the coming decades to meet California’s growing energy needs and safeguard emissions cuts. The American Nuclear Society and our members stand ready to help ensure Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant's carbon-free energy will be available for the benefit of the state and country.”
