Wisland quoted widely on California plan to phase out nuclear power
“It’s great news that PG&E will replace the lost electricity generation from Diablo Canyon with a portfolio of zero-carbon resources, including energy efficiency, renewables, demand response and energy storage,” added Laura Wisland, a senior energy analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), in astatement.
NRDC President Rhea Suh echoed Wisland’s praise: “The Diablo Canyon solution is the way of the future. Even as nuclear plants near retirement, we can cut our carbon footprint with energy efficiency and renewable power. Our families, our businesses and our children will be the better for it.”
