California’s last nuclear plant to close after unanimous vote by regulators
California's last nuclear power plant - Diablo Canyon, whose contentious birth helped shape the modern environmental movement - will close in 2025, state utility regulators decided Thursday. The unanimous vote by the California Public Utilities Commission will likely bring an end to nuclear energy's long history in the state. State law forbids building more nuclear plants in California until the federal government creates a long-term solution for dealing with their waste, a goal that remains elusive despite decades of effort. The decision comes even as California expands its fight against global warming. Owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
