Powering San Francisco

In September, supervisors unanimously approved a bill to force all private commercial buildings of at least 50,000 square feet to use 100 percent renewable energy. Mayor London Breed praised it as “an important step” toward the city reaching its sustainability goals.

Just a week earlier, San Francisco submitted an offer to PG&E to purchase electric distribution and transmission assets that serve the city; the city offered to pay $2.5 billion. Breed and City Attorney Dennis Herrera said they thought their offer was fair and that it would also help the city’s clean energy plans.
