Enhancing outreach to better support customers
We are expanding our involvement and leveraging our relationships with community organizations and advocates. Our aim is to inform, educate and increase awareness about PG&E programs and solutions. As trusted community messengers, these organizations and advocates can provide insight into the unique experiences of customers across PG&E’s territory and enhance overall community well-being.
