Reactor At Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant Unexpectedly Shut Down

Posted on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 1:21pm

The Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant unexpectedly shut down one of its reactors today.

PG & E officials say the plant’s Unit Two was taken offline because of a problem in getting power from the facility to the electrical grid.  Engineers are studying the problem to try to determine what happened.

No problems have been reported with the other reactor at the San Luis Obispo County facility, which is still online, generating electricity.
