The image above the headline was the 8.5 x 11 inch handout CGNP distributed at the Downtown SLO Farmer’s Market on Thursday night, December 14, 2023. By 2030+, CGNP anticipates that DCPP will run beyond 2030.
My wife and I sat through the entire CPUC meeting earlier in the day via the Commission’s web link. The meeting began at 11:00 AM and concluded at 3:29 PM PST. Commissioner Shroma was absent. Perhaps to increase the drama, the DCPP extension agenda item was held until the very last item in the public meeting. The vote was 3-0, which meant the agenda item passed. Commissioner Houck abstained from voting. There were some technical amendments added to the Proposed Decision version the Commission released on December 12, 2023. As a Party, CGNP could not make spoken comments at the meeting. DCPP advocates Jim Hopf, Brandon Pittman, Eva Burn, and Guido Edwardo Mujica spoke in person during the public comment period. Additionally, Paris Ortiz Wines, Madison Schroeder, Heather Hoff, Ryan Pickering, Paul Pymont, Ph.D. and Ken Smith all made comments via telephone.
CGNP is grateful for all the hard work by DCPP advocates to extend plant operations during the past decade. A decade ago, we were told that we were tilting at windmills. Today we celebrate this milestone. Watch for CGNP’s participation in the upcoming DCISC meeting on February 21 – 22, 2024, We also intend to advocate for DCPP extended operations during the upcoming relicensing process before the NRC..
