Please remember that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is hosting two public meetings on August 5 in San Luis Obispo to provide an update on its review of Pacific Gas & Electric’s application to relicense the Diablo Canyon nuclear power station. That application was filed in November 2009.
Here are the meeting details from the NRC meeting schedule pages.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received a license renewal application (LRA) from Pacific Gas and Electric Company, dated November 23, 2009, for the renewal of the operating licenses for Diablo Canyon Power Plant, Units 1 and 2. The purpose of these meetings is for the NRC staff to provide an update on the status of the license renewal process and to allow members of the public the opportunity to provide comments for consideration as part of the environmental review on issues that may have emerged since completion of the last scoping period in April 2010.

Several members of Californians for Green Nuclear Power are planning to attend and provide comments. I’ve heard discussions about holding a pre-meeting rally to show support for the plant; if any details become available, I’ll update this post.
Update: Californians for Green Nuclear Power (CGNP) will be manning a table and holding a rally in support of the continued safe operation of Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM (During the first open house period) tomorrow at the NRC hearing location. End Update.
If you can attend in person, please do so. It is important to show the local media that there are numerous community members who recognize the important role that Diablo Canyon plays in providing clean, safe, reliable electricity to the CA central coast area.
