Join the Local Clean Energy Alliance in telling East Bay Community Energy not to accept nuclear energy from the aging, earthquake-prone Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant.
The EBCE Board of Directors is expected to vote on this proposal at its April 22 meeting (to be held via Zoom).
PG&E has offered free nuclear energy to EBCE. But this is a violation of EBCE’s mission of building a sustainable local energy system. And it could give PG&E an excuse to keep Diablo Canyon open longer.
PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission agreed to close Diablo Canyon by 2025, after studies revealed that the several earthquake faults under the reactor were more dangerous than previously reported. But the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility is pushing to close Diablo Canyon early.
Like the Fukishima nuclear power plant, whose 2011 disastrous explosion forced the evacuation of 154,000 people and contaminated land and water in many communities, Diablo Canyon sits on unstable earthquake faults. The sooner it’s closed, the sooner this disaster-waiting-to-happen can be eliminated and the sooner PG&E can clean up the pools of dangerous, radioactive nuclear waste adjacent to the plant.
Tell the EBCE Board of Directors not to be enablers of this unnecessary hazard. Here are lots of ways:
Post a Social Media Selfie by April 22!
