Unit 2 at Diablo Canyon operating at full power
–Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) Diablo Canyon Power Plant Unit 2 has been returned to service and is now operating at 100 percent power.
Unit 2 had been shut down since December 1, when a grid monitoring protective feature detected a lower than normal current on the transmission lines. Upon sensing the operation of the grid protective feature last Saturday, Unit 2 performed as designed and automatically went off line to protect equipment.
Unit 1 is currently operating at 55-percent power due to maintenance activities.
