Plan of Reorganization

On June 20, 2020, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California confirmed PG&E's Chapter 11 Plan, determining the Plan meets the necessary requirements for confirmation under the Bankruptcy Code.

The Bankruptcy Court's confirmation followed the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) approval of PG&E's Plan on May 28 in its Plan of Reorganization Order Instituting Investigation proceeding. Additionally, on May 22, PG&E announced the final voting results in which the Plan received overwhelming support and was accepted by in excess of 85 percent of wildfire victims who cast votes on the Plan. The deadline for the court-appointed claims agent Prime Clerk to receive ballots was May 15, 2020.
