PG&E Installs 100th Automated Valve as System Upgrades Continue
PG&E has automated its 100th valve through the company's Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan (PSEP). The valve automation program, which began in August 2011, improves PG&E's ability to quickly shut off the flow of gas in the event of a significant change in pressure. Valves can be opened or closed from PG&E's newly designed Gas Control Center in San Ramon, instead of requiring an employee to travel to the site to manually open or close the valve.PG&E Installs 100th Automated Valve as System Upgrades Continue
