Indicator EN.1.e Renewable energy production
Why Is This An Indicator Of Health and Sustainability?
A portfolio of electricity resources that includes an increasing proportion of renewables together with higher levels of energy efficiency can significantly reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and air pollutants, improve marine and wildlife habitats, lower noise levels, lessen visual impacts, and make a contribution to improved public health.
The installed capacity or size of solar photovoltaic installations in San Francisco does not necessarily equal the amount of energy being generated by the installations. Additionally, PG&E’s power mix delivered to retail customers as shown in the figure above represents the state of California as a whole, and therefore may not completely apply to the energy resource generation profile for the City and County of San Francisco.
Due to the nature of the data that is currently available regarding installed renewable energy source generation, a neighborhood comparison and geographic equity analysis of this indicator cannot be completed at this time.
