Find out how we’re reducing greenhouse emissions

PG&E operates one of the cleanest fleets in the utility industry and advances clean fleet technologies that support local economies in our service area. From electric hybrid bucket trucks to extended-range pickups, PG&E actively invests in new vehicle technologies to support local businesses and reduce emissions and operating costs.

Discover how we drive innovation

Electric vehicles reduce emissions and lower costs, and quieter operation provides a better experience for our crews and our communities on the road and at the job site.

 

As part of our commitment to reduce our operational footprint, we continue to add innovative new vehicles to our fleet. This includes partnering with locally-based Efficient Drivetrains Incorporated (EDI) to manufacture groundbreaking utility trucks with the capability to export power to the grid—essentially storing and redeploying PG&E’s clean energy.

Helping our customers select and use green vehicles

We recognize that a plug-in electric vehicle is a big purchase. That’s why we’re helping our customers with this important transition. You can better understand the potential costs and savings of plug-in electric vehicle ownership by using our online calculator. The tool enables you to enter information, such as your choice of vehicle, predicted average monthly usage and charging schedule, and then get the projected electricity costs and gasoline savings.

PG&E's network of natural gas fueling stations includes compressed natural gas stations and one liquefied natural gas station, most of which are open to customers.

 

Learn how we stay flexible and mobile during emergencies

To support our focus on safety, PG&E has deployed mobile command vehicles that we can use to respond to emergencies and protect public and employee safety. When a gas or electric emergency occurs, the vehicles will be deployed on-site. They’ll deliver valuable information to the crews in the field while providing a visible presence for our customers. The vehicles serve as an extension of PG&E’s Emergency Operations Centers and incident command facilities.

The larger mobile command centers can provide support during major emergencies for extended periods. The vehicles are built on a 40-foot bus chassis. They can house a dozen people for days or weeks, if needed, to address any emergency needs. Like their van counterparts, the units are some of the most technologically advanced vehicles in production.
