Educating the public about nuclear power will be critical for building more capacity worldwide. Here’s what we’re doing to help.

Fission Transition is working to:

• Extend to nuclear plant owners the same economic incentives offered to wind and solar farms for their clean power

• Create a level playing field for clean energy by ending CAISO’s wholesale market trading rule which assigns to wind and solar resources a preferential place in its “loading order”

• Eliminate the awarding of tradeable Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), which can be sold to fossil fuel generators to evade responsibility for the CO2 impacts of their energy

• Promote funding for Gen-4 (fourth generation) reactor development in California to help the state regain its lead in clean energy

• Inform legislators and the public of the many benefits of nuclear energy: its safety, its cost-competitiveness, and small land-use and wildlife impacts

• Eliminate the misleading designation of natural gas as a “carbon-free” source of energy, signed into law by CA Gov. Newsom in 2022

• With FT’s Nuclear Wikipedia Task Force (NuclearWTF?™), clear the world’s most popular reference source of misinformation – and disinformation – that is impeding progress of the world’s most promising source of carbon-free energy

• Reach out to local communities with municipal power (Sacramento, Alameda, Burbank, Glendale, others) about the possibilities of de-carbonizing with small-modular or microreactors, and/or exporting reliable power as a source of income

• Submit pro-nuclear articles for publication to influential Sacramento news sources (Sacramento Bee, California Globe, Capitol Weekly) where they will be seen, and read, by California’s top policymakers

• Fight ongoing efforts to close Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant by fossil- or renewables-backed organizations seeking a lucrative piece of Diablo’s “energy pie” – at the expense of the environment, and California ratepayers
