Data for Local Governments

Sharing Usage Data


Welcome to Green Communities, the PG&E site for accessing data reports on community energy. This information is intended for municipal governments with PG&E electric and/or natural gas service. If you represent an entity that qualifies, you can download annual reports formatted for sustainability planning and greenhouse gas inventories.



Below, you'll find more detailed information about the kinds of data and reports available, as well as how to request them.

NOTE: The Green Communities reports have been released for the years 2014 and 2015. Please email with questions or concerns.

*New* Local Government Energy Data Needs Assessment


PG&E welcomes feedback from local governments regarding current and future energy data needs through February 2016.

PG&E summarized feedback received to date in a Draft Needs Assessment (PDF, 580 KB), which also includes instructions on how to submit additional feedback.

*New* December 2015 Energy Data Training

In December 2015, PG&E held two energy data training webinars for local governments to learn about available data reports and request processes.

Types of Data and Reports Available

Data for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventories
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory Reports contain electricity and natural gas consumption data in spreadsheet format. These reports are designed to integrate with tools and guidance available through ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability for municipal and community-wide GHG inventories.

Data for Climate Action Planning
PG&E provides colorful and interactive reports to help local governments gain insights into their community’s municipal, residential, and non-residential energy usage. These insights can be used to inform climate action planning and implementation priorities. Many of the reports use Tableau, a data visualization tool that requires downloading a free reader.
