PG&E is proud to be your utility company. As your energy provider, we’re responsible for providing you with safe, reliable power. To measure our reliability, we constantly track and monitor outages across our service area. Then, we calculate our reliability rates based on this data.
Each year, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) compiles a report that reviews its electric reliability status, with both a system-wide and division-level perspective. The report is submitted to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and is available to the public. The report on 2015 electric reliability was submitted in August 2016. It shows that PG&E achieved record electric reliability for a seventh year.
On Nov. 3, 2016, at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Bakersfield, PG&E hosted a public event to discuss details of its electric reliability report. The event was webcasted so those not in attendance could participate remotely.
