Individuals who, for many years, have been trying to shut down Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant fear not enough is being done to keep the power plant safe by those who own and operate it.
Those having these doubts do not have the technical training, scientific background, the expertise and the hands-on experience to make such claims, which can only be based on their assumptions. Before the plant began operation, numerous studies and site investigations were done concerning earthquakes and tsunamis. These studies and evaluations are continuous and ongoing.
Recent studies have shown Diablo Canyon continues to be safe.
Diablo Canyon, as required by federal law, has always been dedicated to nuclear safety concerning the public, the employees and the environment.
For 30 years, Diablo Canyon has shown to be safe, clean, reliable and a valuable asset to the economy of San Luis Obispo County, providing uninterrupted power to the grid, essential in keeping up with the increasing demand for reliable electricity.
We can’t continue to fall back on fossil fuel if we are concerned about global warming and human health.
