As Clean Power SF gets underway, public officials and renewal energy advocates brace for PG&E "thuggery"
Even if the state regulatory body doesn't hold PG&E's feet to the fire, Mirkarimi won't hold back. "We're tired of the thuggery. We're tired of the bullying," he said. He alluded to the Raker Act, a 1913 act of Congress that allowed San Francisco to build the O'Shaughnessy Dam and draw water from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir under the condition that no private profit was derived from the development, saying the arrangement had been subverted by PG&E. "We should be able to chart our own energy destiny," Mirkarimi said.
