Community Engagement in Decommissioning
We're committed to managing the decommissioning process in an inclusive, forward-thinking, and responsible way.
Community engagement is a key aspect of how we do that, and is one of our core decommissioning principles.
SONGS maintains a vibrant speakers bureau, available to community organizations and civic groups throughout Orange and San Diego counties.
In 2021, we spoke to nearly 20 groups, including student groups, Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions clubs, neighborhood organizations and chambers of commerce.
