For 75 years, the Hunters Point Power Plant provided electricity to light San Francisco homes and businesses. In 1998, PG&E reached an agreement with the City and County of San Francisco, pledging to close the plant as soon as alternative energy sources could be brought online to ensure system reliability. In 2006, we stopped operating the plant and began its dismantlement and cleanup.
Today, the former Hunters Point Power Plant is gone. The soil cleanup is more than 95 percent complete, and groundwater cleanup efforts are nearing completion. Get an update on the cleanup and restoration efforts. Visit Hunters Point Power Plant Closure and Cleanup.

The cleanup project is being performed under the oversight of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and in compliance with the rules and requirements of the City and County of San Francisco, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC).
As the cleanup project enters its final phase, we’re planning for future and temporary uses of the site. Launched on the site in 2013, the NOW Hunters Point program continues to provide a platform for exploring temporary uses of the site. Get details. Visit NOW Hunters Point.
PG&E made a commitment to the community to provide local job opportunities while working to close, dismantle, clean up and restore the Hunters Point site, and we are keeping our promise.
