Power to the People?

The Potrero Power Plant could be shut down as early as February, SF Citizen notes today. With the Trans Bay Cable now in operation, the plant is no longer necessary for powering the city. What do to do with the remaining structure? The Citizen recommends the city "rename the PPP's iconic red tower 'Coit Tower South,' and charge tourists admission to take rides to the top." We hope the trap will also involve a re-homing of some Telegraph Hill parrots. [SF Citizen]
