PG&E sees restoring service to all electric customers in CA affected by fires
PG&E said that more than 4,300 employees and mutual-aid partners continued restoring electric and gas service to customers impacted by the unprecedented wind-driven wildfires in Northern California. By late Monday night, the company anticipates restoring service to essentially all electric customers able to receive it, once approval to energize is granted by CAL FIRE. By Wednesday night, the company anticipates restoring service to all gas customers able to receive it, once safe access is granted by CAL FIRE. "To support all of our customers impacted by these terrible wildfires, we have marshalled one of the largest restoration responses in recent company history at a scale that compares with our response during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake," said Nick Stavropoulos, PG&E president and chief operating officer. "Surveying the devastation with our crews first hand is a sobering experience, and I am humbled by the dedication of our team and partners who are tirelessly working around the clock to restore electric and gas service. We won't rest until all our customers are restored, and we will continue to support our customers in the long term as they work to rebuild and recover from this tragedy."
