PG&E Hunters Point Site

For 75 years, the Hunters Point Power Plant provided electricity to light and heat San Francisco homes and businesses. In 1998, PG&E signed an agreement with the City and County of San Francisco pledging to shut down the plant as soon as regulators could determine that the plant was no longer needed to supply reliable electrical service to San Francisco. In 2006, the regulators made that determination and PG&E promptly closed the plant.

Today, the Hunters Point Power Plant is gone. PG&E has completed the on-site soil cleanup in accordance with a plan approved by state regulators with input from the community. The main groundwater remediation effort is also completed, with monitoring and treatment continuing in the remaining areas.

The project is being overseen by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), the City and County of San Francisco, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission.

PG&E made a commitment to the community to work in partnership and provide local job opportunities while working to close, dismantle and cleanup the Hunters Point Power Plant, and we are keeping our promise. There has been a successful community hiring program in place since the dismantling work began in 2007 (see the Local Jobs tab on the left for more information). PG&E is proud of the local jobs that have been created at the site since the plant closed and we look forward to continuing this partnership with the community. Since the decommissioning project began, PG&E has placed a high priority on hiring local labor, truckers, and businesses from the Bayview Hunters Point Community.

We continually update this site as we have new information to share, so please check back frequently.
