Rebuilding a home or business

Our Building and Renovation Services department works directly with customers impacted by wildfires who need temporary power to rebuild structures or live on their properties, and subsequent permanent electric and natural gas services. PG&E is assisting customers affected by the Camp Fire by waiving the fee for connecting temporary power. PG&E's Building and Renovation Services Department is the customers' point of contact for applying for power.

It is important to contact PG&E as early as possible if you plan to repair or rebuild. For temporary rebuilding power and for subsequent permanent power, call us at 1-877-743-7782 or submit an application to "Your Projects." Be sure to indicate on your application that your request for service is due to the Camp Fire.

Keep contact information up to date

For public safety, it may be necessary for us to temporarily turn off electricity when gusty winds and dry conditions, combined with a heightened fire risk, are forecasted. We will attempt to contact customers in advance to ensure there’s enough time to prepare.
