Diablo Canyon Closure Impacts – Information & Resources

On June 21, 2016, Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) announced the planned closure of Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP). In response, as part of our continuing service to the community, San Luis Obispo County Workforce Development has begun collecting and compiling any and all relevant information pertaining to the local workforce impacts of the planned closure. We have created this webpage to be a one-stop information resource  for our service providers, partner agencies, local employers, and the community as a whole. Our belief is that through the dissemination of accurate and unbiased information, our community will be able to put forward plans and services to mitigate or eliminate any possible adverse impacts of the planned closure.
