Renewable Energy

Reflecting the City's commitment to making the Baylands a sustainable development, by integrating meaningful on-site renewable energy generation, the City has prepared a Preliminary Renewable Energy Feasibility Study for the Baylands.  This technical document is intended as a starting point for discussions with PG&E, the community, the property owner, renewable energy developers and others regarding what form and level of renewable energy generation on the Baylands is possible.  This document was submitted to PG&E in October 2010 for their review and comment.  Once feedback is received from PG&E the matter will be scheduled for further discussion with the community and City Council to discuss potential next steps. 


On Monday, June 17, 2013, the City Council received a very thorough presentation from Zi Zi Searles, Remedial Project Manager for the EPA's Re-Powering Rapid Response Team, which supports the RE-Powering America's Land Initiative - the program through which Brisbane was chosen as 1 of 26 sites to receive technical assistance in the form of a renewable energy study for the Brisbane Baylands.  If you missed it, you can watch back just the portion focused on the presentation (the full meeting playback can be viewed here). 

On September 16, 2014, the City received a copy of the PowerPoint presentation from the EPA presented to the Council in the video above which includes an update to the PV prices on slides 11 and 12 so that the latest PV price data and models are reflected.  A memorandum explaining the updates in further detail was also received.
