Nuclear Opportunities


Did You Know? California had one operating nuclear power plant: Diablo Canyon, which generates 2,160 megawatts – enough to power over 200,000 homes.

Emission-free energy, powered by you.

While there are just a few nuclear power plants in California, they account for almost 14% of our energy generation. Nuclear power plants generate energy by capturing the massive amounts of energy released by the splitting of atoms to power steam turbine-generators. This safe and continuous supply of energy requires countless engineers, operators and technicians to operate the large scale facilities and ensure California’s energy needs are met.
