In the position, Allen will oversee the daily operations of the facility and provide leadership over the plant's maintenance and security functions, as well as lead the periodic refueling of both reactor units. He will report to Ed Halpin, PG&E's Senior Vice President and Chief Nuclear Officer.

" Barry Allen's strong leadership and vast experience in running nuclear power generating facilities will be invaluable as we continue to build upon Diablo Canyon's strong record of safety and efficient operations," said Halpin. "We are excited to have Barry join the Diablo Canyon team and I look forward to working with him in his new role."

Allen brings to Diablo Canyon more than 30 years of nuclear power industry experience, obtained while working in increasing levels of responsibility at Entergy and FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (FENOC).  He joined FENOC in 2003 as Plant Manager at the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station in Oak Harbor, Ohio. Allen was later named Site Operations Director at Perry Nuclear Generating Station in North Perry, Ohio, in 2006 and became Site Vice President in 2007. In 2008, he assumed his current position as Site Vice President at Davis-Besse.

Prior to joining FENOC, Allen served in a number of engineering and maintenance assignments, including Director of Engineering, at Entergy's Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station in Louisiana. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture Structures degree and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree from Texas Tech University.

"Barry is a well-respected veteran of the nuclear industry," said John Conway, who as Senior Vice President of Energy Supply oversees all of PG&E's energy procurement and nuclear, renewables, hydroelectric and fossil generation functions. "He brings a wealth of operational experience to this position and is well suited for ensuring that Diablo Canyon remains a safe and vital part of California's clean energy resource portfolio for years to come."

"I am proud to join PG&E and a Diablo Canyon team that maintains high standards of excellence while consistently delivering safe, clean, and reliable electricity to its customers," said Allen. "I look forward to working with the team to continue the facility's strong operating and performance record in the industry."
