Bill introduced to allow nuclear power to qualify as a renewable energy source via KSBY

A California constitutional amendment would allow nuclear power to qualify as a renewable energy source under the state’s Renewables Portfolio Standard.

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham introduced ACA 18 , which he says would create fairness in the renewable energy market.

Currently, California’s climate change laws do not allow all types of carbon emission-free sources of power to be counted towards emissions goals, the press release stated.

“If we are serious about combating climate change, and we should be, both nuclear power and large hydropower must play an important role in our transition to an emission-free energy grid. Future generations – and present ratepayers – deserve nothing less than an ‘all-of-the-above’ approach to fighting climate change.”

By counting nuclear energy as part of the state’s climate goals, the amendment could potentially Diablo Canyon stay operational past the 2025 closure date.
