The DCDEP was convened by PG&E as a volunteer, non-regulatory body created to foster and encourage open communication, public involvement and education on DCPP decommissioning plans and activities.
It is intended to serve as a forum for the local community to provide direct input to PG&E, regulatory agencies and the local community on matters related to DCPP decommissioning, including land use and repurposing of facilities recommendations.
The DCDEP functions solely in an informational and advisory capacity. The meetings and workshops held by the DCDEP allow local community members to provide direct input to PG&E, and subject matter experts to provide information to the Panel and the public about DCPP decommissioning.
Final decisions regarding DCPP decommissioning will be made by PG&E in conjunction with the appropriate regulatory agencies.
