PG&E names new Chief Nuclear Officer

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E, NYSE: PCG) has named Edward Halpin as its new Senior Vice President and Chief Nuclear Officer. In this position, Halpin will be responsible for the operations of the 2,300 MW Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (DCPP) and the decommissioning of the Humboldt Bay Power Plant. He will also serve as the utility's lead contact with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

Halpin has almost 30 years of experience in the nuclear industry with time at STP Nuclear Operating Co. (STP) in Texas and with the U.S Navy's nuclear submarine service.

Halpin is assuming the role from John Conway, who in addition to overseeing nuclear generation at PG&E as the Chief Nuclear Officer, has been leading all energy procurement and hydro, fossil and renewables generation functions as Senior Vice President of Energy Supply. Halpin will be based full time at DCPP concentrating solely on leading the utility's nuclear program.

Halpin comes to PG&E from his current position as the President, CEO, and Chief Nuclear Officer at STP.
