Community Outreach

For more than 25 years, Diablo Canyon Power Plant has been a proud member of the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara communities. As a responsible corporate neighbor, we want to continue to be part of our community: hundreds of visitors have come to learn at our Energy Education Center; more than $300,000 annually has been made in charitable donations to after-school programs, senior centers and other vital community projects; and employees have volunteered thousands of hours to support a range of community service, athletic and environmental organizations.


Diablo Canyon Tour Program

Tours of Diablo Canyon Power Plant are available on a limited basis. If you are interested in requesting a tour please contact us at or call 805-546-5280. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and depending on availability.

Interested visitors may also contact the Diablo Canyon Independent Safety Committee (DCISC) for information on tri-annual public tours that are offered in conjunction with DCISC public meetings. Please visit for more information.

However, for those who want a taste of plant operations, please visit our Energy Education Center to see exhibits about plant operations, safety and how nuclear power is generated. Arrangements can be made in advance for a guided tour of the Center.

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Diablo Canyon.
