The Diablo Canyon NPP in the US state of California is set to be permanently shut down by 2025, under a proposal announced on 21 June by plant operator Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E). The proposal was put forward jointly with unions and environmental organisations to reflect "California's changing energy landscape". PG&E said the move "would increase investment in energy efficiency, renewables and storage beyond current state mandates while phasing out PG&E's production of nuclear power in California by 2025".
