Our City. Our Power.
Our City, San Francisco, is a leader in the clean energy movement.
For 100 years, Our City has been generating greenhouse gas-free hydropower. This clean power energizes our street lights, MUNI, schools, City Hall, the Zoo, and other civic institutions and private facilities. In 2016, Our City launched CleanPowerSF, and today powers more than 80,000 San Francisco residents and businesses with more renewable energy from sources like wind and solar. Together, Our Power programs reduce our carbon footprint, combat global climate change, and create a better, brighter future for San Francisco, for California, and for our planet.
Learn more below about the clean energy programs that the City offers through the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC).
As water flows downhill from Yosemite to the Bay Area, we harness the natural force of gravity to generate 100% greenhouse gas-free hydroelectric power. In addition to hydroelectricity, the Hetch Hetchy Power mix also includes energy generated from other local, renewable sources including solar and biogas. Any municipal facility and many large commercial and residential developments are eligible for Hetch Hetchy Power.
CleanPowerSF is San Francisco’s official Community Choice Energy program. CleanPowerSF buys electricity from renewable sources like solar and wind, and puts that clean electricity on the power grid for everyone. That electricity is delivered to your home or business through PG&E’s existing power lines. All other aspects of your electricity service remain the same. Any customer with a PG&E electric account is eligible for CleanPowerSF.
