Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant
Needs a date and time

Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant

It's a bit out of the way, but I've always thought it would be fascinating to tour an operating nuclear power station, and Diablo Canyon's future is somewhat in doubt, so the sooner the better. According to PG&E (http://www.pge.com/en/safety/systemworks/dcpp/communityoutreach/index.page), tours have to be expressly requested and are considered on a case-by-case basis. I'm assuming having a larger interested group would significantly increase the chance of having a tour approved.
