We're moving forward, together


We can never forget what happened in San Bruno in 2010. Since then, we've made a commitment to move forward together and help improve the communities that have been so deeply affected by the tragedy.


Over the next several years, PG&E intends to complete 10,000 hours of community service in and around San Bruno, with high-level personnel fulfilling at least 2,000 of those hours.


This initiative is necessary to meet the terms of PG&E's sentence in the federal trial. More importantly, it's an opportunity to rebuild relationships and remind our customers who PG&E employees are when at their best.


We plan to apply our core competencies as an energy company.


Our efforts are being carried out in partnership with the City of San Bruno.
