Valve upgrades


The valve automation system is a tool that PG&E uses to keep our customers safe. The system allows us to quickly shut off the flow of gas when a significant change in pressure occurs. We can remotely open or close valves from the newly designed PG&E Gas Control Center.


PG&E also has 14 automatic shutoff valves. They’re installed where transmission pipelines cross major fault lines. The valves automatically close if there is a possible pipeline rupture.
