Decommissioning Engagement Panel
Strategic Vision

Since its creation in May 2018, the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel has conducted public meetings and workshops on key topics of decommissioning, including Decommissioning Process, Decommissioning Funding, Use of Diablo Canyon Lands, Repurposing of Diablo Canyon Facilities, Emergency Services, Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel, Performance and Structure of the Panel, and Economic Opportunities and Impacts of Decommissioning. The Panel has prepared a Strategic Vision Report that includes vision statements, goals and specific recommendations for these key areas of decommissioning based on the community input and technical presentations at the meetings and workshops. The Strategic Vision was submitted to PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission in 2018 and has been continuously updated as new decommissioning topics are addressed.
