San Francisco: PG&E Volunteers Help Preserve a Piece of 'The Rock'

Staffers from the PG&E Academy, the utility's skills training and development arm, volunteer for numerous community events throughout the year. That includes last Thursday (Aug. 14), when 16 Academy employees spent four hours tending to the gardens on San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island. "I floated the idea to my team and they thought it was a great opportunity," said Jon Faulk, PG&E director of enterprise systems training. "It was a team-building exercise. Everyone wanted to do some shovel-in-the-ground type of work."

SAN LUIS OBISPO – For taking the extra mile in conserving natural resources, PG&E was recently presented with the Conservationist of the Year Award from the Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District (RCD). The presentation took place Tuesday (Aug. 19) at the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors' chambers.

Imagine going out for lunch, sitting down, and before taking a bite, you hear a loud noise outside. You look out the window and see that a large truck had hit a utility pole. As a result, a transformer crashed to the ground, causing fluid leakage. And a live electrical wire became dislodged and is dangling at the side of the pole.
