Join the Local Clean Energy Alliance, the Sierra Club, and others to tell East Bay Community Energy not to buy nuclear power. On December 18, East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) will consider a proposal to contract for “carbon free” energy, which would be 30% large hydroelectric and 70% nuclear..
Now there is no nuclear in East Bay Community Energy’s power mix, and many community members and organizations who advocated for community choice explicitly intended to have a “nuclear free” program. As evidenced by the 2025 decommissioning of Diablo Canyon (the last nuclear plant in CA), nuclear is on the way out. This process has been hastened by nuclear plant accidents, failing designs, cost and the operational time lag in new plants, not to mention the unsolvable hazardous waste problem.
The Local Clean Energy Alliance says neither large hydro nor nuclear is community- or environmentally friendly — check out the Principles of Environmental Justice.
The East Bay Community Energy board agenda is expected to be available here December 14 and the board is expected to make a decision on December 18. Please join in telling EBCE to reject nuclear energy
