I think any step towards building a cleaner power plant is a good move. This could be an opportunity for SF to take the LEED (chuckle) in setting a good example, and promoting the green technology industry (that we *hear* so much about) here in the Bay Area.

Fingers crossed.

Wonder if Newsom's "alternative" involves tidal power.

Runour is: There is a plan to cut the top 20 feet of the dome in City Hall and add a horizontal wind turbine to capture all the hot air coming from there. That will make up for the Potrero Hill plant.
