Hunters Point Power Plant Closure and Cleanup
Local Hiring and Sustainability
PG&E has implemented sustainability and local hiring practices benefitting workers, the community and the environment. Those practices include:
- Transporting excavated soil through the use of the rail yard and train operation located close to the site on Cargo Way, which has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 4,000 metric tons.
- Recycling more than 7,500 tons of clean concrete (since the project began) at local recycling facilities, which have converted the material into road bed material for local road-building projects.
- Helping to provide the local economy a healthy economic boost by hiring at least 30% of our laborer workforce, in addition to truckers, from the local community (i.e., zip codes 94124, 94134 and 94107). We've also used local businesses (e.g. construction and remediation contractors, security companies, equipment rentals, etc.) based in the community or in San Francisco whenever possible.
PG&E is proud of the local jobs that have been created at the site since the plant closed. PG&E coordinates its community hiring program with the City of San Francisco's CityBuild program and local labor leaders.
