Event Planning at the PEC

Who can use the PEC?

The PEC is funded by California utility customers and administered by PG&E under the auspices of the CPUC. Our facilities are primarily for our educational programs and events directly related to energy efficiency, distributed generation, and demand response. PEC facilities have also been made available to companies, organizations, and institutions for meetings and other events related to energy conservation and the environment. Requests for meetings and events of this type are considered on a case-by-case basis and upon availability of space.
