From the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Currents, September-October 2014:
“Residents and merchants at San Francisco Shipyard will make history when their new homes and businesses become the first to run on cost-effective, greenhouse gas free Hetch Hetchy hydroelectricity. When the first houses come online this fall, the new owners will enjoy some of the most cleanest electricity available in the country – at competitive prices. Hetch Hetchy hydroelectricity will provide Shipyard ratepayers with substantial savings over the long term when compared to other San Francisco electricity customers.”
“Good for the earth and good for the wallet; learn more about the Shipyard’s clean Hetch Hetchy energy services at sfwater.org/shipyard.”
New Contracting Opportunities in Green Infrastructure Construction
As part of the Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP), the SFPUC is building eight innovative green infrastructure projects throughout the City in the next few years. As the SFPUC upgrades its aging combined sewer system, the SFPUC will integrate a mix of green (landscape and streetscape projects to manage stormwater) and grey (pipes, pump stations and other facilities) infrastructure projects to improve its sewer system. This marks the beginning of many green and grey infrastructure projects that will be built over the next 20 years as part of the SSIP.
While these projects require new skills, they open the door to new opportunities for many contractors. The opportunities for green infrastructure work will increase because private developers are also required to incorporate green infrastructure into their projects.
Find out how your company can participate in upcoming green infrastructure projects including upcoming contracts with the City.
