PG&E wants to close five older electrical plants in Eastern Contra Costa County as part of a statewide effort to reduce pollution.

Two of the plants are in Antioch, two more are in Pittsburg while the other is in Bay Point. A natural gas burning facility in Tracy will pick up the load being lost by closing the five plants. Nearly 100 employees at the plants being closed may get offered jobs in Tracy.
