From the Chronicle with respect to Mirant’s potrero hill power plant between 22nd and 23rd Streets off of Third:
San Francisco’s dirty power plant on the eastern waterfront would shut down by end of next year, under a legal agreement announced today between Mirant Corp. and City Attorney Dennis Herrera.
The California Independent System Operator (ISO) which manages the state’s power grid “has long maintained that San Francisco must have some power generation within city limits” and would need to agree to the closure.
The city, meanwhile, has argued that a major transmission line from the East Bay will ensure a reliable energy supply when it is completed in March or April.
