License Renewal

license renewal process

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has applied for a 20-year extension of its operating licenses for the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. The current operating licenses for Diablo Canyon’s two nuclear reactors expire in 2024 and 2025, respectively. PG&E has applied to continue operations until 2044/2045.

Mothers for Peace has challenged this license extension.  Pertinent documents can be found below.
