Description

The Pacific Gas and Electric Company, along with environmental groups, announced Tuesday that California's last nuclear power plant will close by 2025. The plant, located in Diablo Canyon, has been controversial for years due to it's location near earthquake-prone seismic faults. The plan is to replace the plant's output with solar and other environmentally friendly energy sources. Advocates for alternate energy sources say that renewable energy is now cheap enough to tip the market away from nuclear energy.
