Port of Oakland makes progress with utility green power portfolio

The Port of Oakland Utility serving customers at the seaport and airport has announced that 66.9% of its power needs are fulfilled from carbon-free energy sources, translating to nearly double the state average.

Specifically, the Port Utility, as reported in the Port Authority's 2021 Green Energy Portfolio, supplied 49.9% of its energy from eligible renewable sources, well above the state average of 33.6%.

In addition, the breakdown of renewable sources includes biomass and biowaste (9.4%), eligible hydroelectricity (2%), solar (21.9%), and finally wind (18.4%).

Moreover, there is an additional 8.7% of power that came from large hydroelectric sources and an additional 8.3% from solar, bringing the total to 66.9% of green power.

The port annually reports its electricity purchases to the Energy Commission, which in turn creates a Power Content Label, providing information to consumers about the sources of their power.

"Operating an electric utility in California today is challenging with storms, wildfires and droughts that impede availability of power. However, the Port’s mix of power resources demonstrates our commitment to providing cleaner energy, reliable power and rates lower than surrounding utilities," said Port of Oakland manager of Utilities Administration Jared Carpenter

California State Assembly Bill 1110, requires retail suppliers to disclose their power sources as part of the state’s effort to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
