Join community and labor activists to keep Alameda County’s community choice energy program free from nuclear power!
Alameda County’s own public electricity agency, East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) is considering accepting PG&E’s dangerous nuclear energy into its power mix. Currently there is no nuclear in EBCE’s mix as shown here on EBCE’s website.
The East Bay Clean Power Alliance is leading opposition to this proposal — the same community and labor organizations that led the fight to create EBCE and make sure its priorities are creating clean energy jobs, community wealth, affordability, less remote transmission, and fighting climate change with equity at the center.
Join the fight to keep nuclear energy out of EBCE!
1. Sign the petition to keep EBCE nuclear free
2. Tell the EBCE Board of Directors: No nuke!

If EBCE accepts nuclear energy from California’s last remaining nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, that will weaken efforts to close that plant immediately. We need to close Diablo Canyon now!
Diablo Canyon is an aging nuclear power plant built on several earthquake faults near the ocean — just like the Fukushima plant whose meltdown caused havoc in Japan. Radioactive waste from the plant sits in large pools on top of those faults and there’s no way to store it safely.
The cost of keeping Diablo Canyon open has skyrocketed to over $1 billion a year in losses. Guess who has to pay? We do! PG&E charges its customers for this cost on their bills — and charges community choice customers for Diablo Canyon costs as part of the exit fee they pay to PG&E.
EBCE and all other community choice programs could save tens of million of dollars in costs to customers if Diablo Canyon were to close before 2025, as the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility is urging in its motion to the CPUC.
