Recognize that PG&E is part of the problem, not part of the solution. PG&E doesn't want public power. The company doesn't want widespread solar generation. In fact, the giant private utility has no incentive to do anything that keeps it from making money by selling power over its lines. You can almost judge a solar plan by one standard if PG&E is OK with it, it must be a bad idea.
The supervisors are right to question Newsom's plan, and in the end, they should reject it and create a new one that meets the key tests of an effective long-term energy program for San Francisco.
