Past Intiatives

SF Community Power has engaged in a number of successful energy-saving and pollution-reducing initiatives over its almost decade-long history.

Potrero Power Plant Expansion

Our efforts helped stop the proposed doubling in size of the Potrero Power Plant. We're working with others to shutter the half-century old plant.

Trans Bay Cable Project

Our opposition to the costly Trans Bay Cable helped lead to the creation of $50 million in environmental mitigation funds.

Treasure Trek

This award-winning program engaged community members in reducing their energy use through a fun, family-friendly treasure trek through San Francisco's Potrero Hill Neighborhood.

Efficiency on Wheels

Efficiency on Wheels program was an $800,000, 18-month energy efficiency program that helped low-income families and small businesses in San Francisco save electricity and lower their utility bill.

Hunters Point Power Plant Closure

We helped close the century-old Hunters Point Power Plant, one of the oldest and dirtiest in the state and the single largest stationary source of air pollution in San Francisco.

Church Lights

With funds from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Community Power retrofitted lighting and other electrical devices at small churches in San Francisco.

Food Service Institute

With funds from the San Francisco Department of the Environment, Community Power replaced more than 100 commercial refrigerators, including a 1950's Studebaker model.

The Cooperative

Community Power was originally launched as a cooperative in 2001 to enable residents and small businesses to purchase low-cost energy saving equipment.
