Yeah, seems like nuclear would be under consideration. Then again, there are not many nuclear plants being built, and we had an unfavorable experience with the last one that closed down, about 30 miles from my house. It was old and had a bit of a leak, and it was very difficult to find somewhere to dump all the radioactive stuff afterward.
Diablo Canyon, the last nuclear plant in CA, took over 15 years to build and had a planned decommission date of 2025. Most of the nuclear power plants in the US had a design life of 40 tears, with no real plan on how to decommission them. Considering there are under 60 active reactors in 39 states, many are nearing or beyond their planned life span, and only a few are under active construction, it is not too surprising that California of all.states isn’t pursuing them, despite the opportunity for clean energy and and a clear need for more power. Not saying they should be off the table, just saying that it’s not surprising, all things considered.
