Understand PG&E's watershed land support

Hydroelectric power is a clean and dependable source of energy and PG&E has been in the business of hydroelectric power generation for over a century. Our hydroelectric system is comprised of more than 100 reservoirs, numerous powerhouses and various other facilities located across the PG&E service territory. These facilities are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as well as the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
