Description

This story came out of the Bay Guardian's 30 year effort to force the City of San Francisco to abide by federal law requiring the city to deliver electric power generated from the city-owned Hetch Hetchy dam to the citizens of San Francisco, stop Pacific Gas & Electric co.'s illegal monopoly in San Francisco and curb the locally headquartered, massive transnational corporations undue influence on City Hall. This particular story uncovered that from 1995 to 1996 the Grand Jury had investigated the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (PUC), which oversees operation of the dam, for having a relationship altogether too cozy with PG&E.
