This program was originally scheduled for September 18.

From a changing climate to the PG&E bankruptcy, San Francisco is facing a new energy landscape and the city’s elected leaders are considering a shift to public power to stabilize costs, ensure reliability, increase local oversight and expand the city’s use of renewable energy. But can this approach work? What have other cities learned about public power and when should San Francisco take the next step?
