Hetch Hetchy Power

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) owns and operates the Hetch Hetchy Power System. Our facilities have been generating some of the cleanest energy available in California since 1918. Water flows downhill as it travels 167 miles from Yosemite to 2.7 million people throughout the Bay Area, and we put it to work by harnessing the natural forces of gravity-driven water to generate 100% greenhouse gas-free hydroelectric power.

This clean Hetch Hetchy Power, along with renewable power that we generate locally from solar and biogas facilities, energizes vital San Francisco services as well as a growing number of residential and commercial customers. All in all, we provide about 17% of San Francisco’s total electricity.
