Cleaning up and closing Hunters Point Power Plant
Learn about our approach to local hiring and sustainability
PG&E has implemented sustainability and local hiring practices that benefit workers, our community and the environment. The practices include:
- Transporting excavated soil by rail from the rail yard located near the site on Cargo Way. The rail transport reduced greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 5,400 metric tons.
- Recycling more than 100,000 tons of waste since the project began.
- Running one of the top local hiring programs in San Francisco. The Hunters Point Power Plant project’s goal was to get a minimum of 30 percent of its labor from the local community. The goal was met or exceeded every year since the project became active. Local community labor typically reached around 40 percent. Since 2006, over $24 million was spent in the local community on wages and services.
Coordinating our community hiring process
We're proud of the local jobs created at the site since the plant closed. We coordinate our community-hiring program with the City of San Francisco’s CityBuild program and local labor leaders.
