The Renewable Energy Generation Alternative is based on a proposal by the Committee for Renewable Energy for the Baylands (CREBL) to develop utility-scale renewable energy generation at the Baylands.

CREBL’s goal for this alternative was to not only offset the energy demand for development of the entire Project Site, but also to produce additional electricity for consumption by Brisbane homes, businesses, and City- owned facilities. Land uses under the Renewable Energy Generation Alternative would include 170 acres of alternative energy uses consisting of a large photovoltaic (PV) solar farm, small vertical-axis wind turbines, wind turbines placed within the development, and rooftop PV solar panels; 654,900 square feet of research and development facilities on 59 acres; and 173,800 square feet of retail/entertainment uses on 26 acres. Others uses at the Project Site would include a new water treatment plant (seven acres) and relocated industrial uses (three acres). The remainder of the Project Site would be designated open space/public uses. The Recology expansion, relocation of the existing lumberyards, adaptive reuse of the Roundhouse and Lazzari Fuel Company buildings, Geneva Avenue extension, site remediation, and approval of the proposed water supply agreement would also occur as part of this alternative. The portion of the 2,400 acre-feet of water supply contemplated for Project Site development use in the proposed water transfer agreement would be reduced to accommodate the actual water demand associated with this alternative (approximately 300 acre feet); the 400 acre-feet of water to be used for citywide purposes would be remain in its entirety. The recycled water plant would not be developed under this alternative. Overall, this alternative would reduce or avoid significant traffic, air quality, greenhouse gas (GHG), noise, public services, and population/housing impacts, and develop a project that would be consistent with the development intensity contemplated by the General Plan and its EIR, while meeting most Project objectives.
