A landmark church atop San Francisco's Nob Hill is getting a state-of-the-art solar energy system, thanks to a donation from Pacific Gas and Electric.

Grace Episcopal Cathedral on California Street may have 13th century French-Gothic architecture, but its power plant will soon be the very latest in clean technology.

PG&E officials joined city leaders on the steps of the cathedral Wednesday to unveil the plans.

Solar panels will provide clean, renewable energy for the church as well as help PG&E meet its long term committment to providing at least 20 percent renewable energy to customers.
