Potrero Power Plant

Sugar, Power, Money, History...it's all here at the Power Plant

The many layers of history that distinguish Potrero Point can all be seen through the lens of the Potrero Power Station. On the cusp of it's next iteration as a development, it was the site of Claus Spreckels' (the Sugar Baron) pivotal creation which then became the original PG&E.

Enjoy the full story of the Power Station from the 2020 Potrero Hill History Night by historian Jonathan Lammers.
