Based in San Francisco, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, one of the largest combined natural gas and electric utilities in the United States with operations that span power generation and procurement; electric transmission and distribution; and natural gas transmission, distribution and storage. The company’s 24,000 employees deliver safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy to nearly 16 million people throughout its Northern and Central California service area stretching from Eureka in the north to Bakersfield in the south, and from the Pacific Ocean to the Sierra Nevada in the east.

As a California utility, Pacific Gas and Electric Company is at the forefront of changes in the utility industry to support the transition to a cleaner energy economy. The company is ranked among the nation’s cleanest utilities and is one of the industry’s largest investors in infrastructure modernization and technology to support the addition of more renewable resources, strengthen safety and reliability, and build a smarter, more resilient grid to meet customers’ evolving energy-related needs. Thirty-eight percent of the energy PG&E delivered in 2016 came from state-qualified renewable resources, and nearly 70 percent comes from sources that emit no greenhouse gases. The company is also a leading voice shaping clean energy policies at the state and national levels.

PG&E is an integral contributor to California’s economy, supporting jobs, stimulating economic growth and contributing to the tax base in hundreds of communities from Bakersfield to Eureka. In total, the company’s operations support an estimated 70,000+ jobs and generate more than $22 billion in annual economic output in California. Pacific Gas and Electric Company had approximately $69 billion in assets as of December 31, 2016, and generated revenues of approximately $18 billion in 2016.

Since a highly publicized and very unfortunate explosion that occurred in San Bruno, California along one of PG&E’s natural gas pipelines in 2010, the company has taken full responsibility, making reparations, accepting penalties and fines. PG&E has redoubled its commitment to create and maintain a business culture centered on employee and public safety, integrity, ethics and compliance. Additionally, PG&E has made significant investment in its gas system and integrity management, resulting in certification and recertification by Lloyd’s Register on two of the highest internationally recognized safety certifications (ISO 55001 and PAS 55).
