PG&E to Explore Keeping Diablo Canyon Open

New York Times: "Newsom has no direct authority over the plant, so its owner, PG&E, would have to request a share of the $6 billion recently made available by the Biden administration. The deadline to apply for the funds was originally this week, but federal officials just postponed it until July.

"A PG&E spokeswoman, Suzanne Hosn, said on Thursday that the agency was open to exploring different options 'if the state determines Diablo Canyon is needed' to keep its energy grid reliable. PG&E would likely need approval from state and federal regulators to prolong the life of its nuclear reactors."
