The Power Plant Task Force is reviewing the City?s proposal to site three gas-fired peaker plants at 25th and Maryland streets at the foot of Potrero Hill.
The new peakers coupled with PG&E?s completion of electric transmission projects would permit the closure of older polluting power plants in the Southeast.
The Task Force has invited representatives from Mirant Corp. (Potrero Power Plant), PG&E (Hunters Point Power Plant), the California Independent System Operator, the manager of electric transmission in the State, and the City, to provide presentations.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Task Force is considering a resolution to provide conditional support for the siting of the City?s gas-fired peaker plants. We want to hear from neighborhood residents before taking action.
