The Air District announced today that it will request that the agency’s independent Hearing Board issue an abatement order to shut down nine diesel generators at the Green Sage cannabis facilities in East Oakland. 

Spare the Air Status

The Air District issued a Notice of Violation to Green Sage on February 16, 2022, for operating without a permit. The Air District is seeking to shut down Green Sage’s diesel generators for ongoing violations at their Oakland Tinnery and Oakland Cannery facilities.

If the Hearing Board approves the abatement order, Green Sage would be required to shut down the diesel generators immediately.

East Oakland suffers more air pollution than other parts of the Bay Area and approval of the abatement order will help protect local residents that are at risk of significant health impacts.

Abatement orders and cases brought before the Hearing Board allow for transparency, as facts and evidence are presented in an open forum while providing an opportunity for public involvement. The public is encouraged to participate and comment when the proposed abatement order is presented to the Hearing Board. Once the hearing is scheduled, a link will be posted on the Air District’s website at The public can also sign up for Hearing Board updates on the Air District's Sign Up for Information web page.
