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 2016 electric reliability was submitted in July 2017. It shows that PG&E achieved its second best electric reliability ever.
