2025 DCPP Emergency Planning Calendar Photo Contest

Work has begun on next year's 2025 Emergency Planning Calendar and we are hoping you can help!  This calendar is one of the ways we meet our federal requirements for distributing emergency information to communities around the Diablo Canyon Power Plant.

We are looking for images highlighting the scenic diversity of San Luis Obispo County. Selected images will be published in the 2025 Emergency Planning Calendar.  More than 100,000 calendars will be distributed around the county.
