The San Francisco Board of Supervisors this week delayed approval of a bond-financed, gas-powered electric plant in the city. Mayor Gavin Newsom requested another week to consider options that would produce less greenhouse gases.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission would issue certificates of participation to finance the plant, which is backed by Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, whose district includes the new and old plants.
