Port Utilities

The Port provides utility services (electrical, gas, water, and sewer service) to Port facilities (tenant-operated and Port-operated facilities) in support of Aviation, Maritime, and Commercial Real Estate operations.

The Utilities Department is a unit within the Engineering Division that provides the expertise to manage the Port's utility distribution system (electrical, gas, water, sewer and telephone). The department ensures that the Port plans, operates and upgrades its utility systems in an effective and efficient manner in compliance with all rules and regulations.

Electricity

The Port of Oakland has its own municipal electric utility that serves Oakland International Airport, the majority of the Oakland Seaport and some portions of land along the shoreline in between. If you would like further details on the system, metering, specific locations, renewables, or other related information, please contact Jared Carpenter, Manager of Utilities Administration (jcarpenter@portoakland.com).

For the areas served by the Port as a municipal utility, the Utilities Department purchases and manages the delivery of electricity to the Port's customers at OAK and in certain seaport areas. It also obtains renewable energy for the Port, takes measures to reduce the Port's greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation and promotes energy efficiency.

Natural Gas

The Port provides and sells natural gas on a very limited, pass-through basis from PG&E.

Water & Sewer

The Port provides water distribution and sewer collection infrastructure, through which the water commodity and sewer treatment services are provided by the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD).
