At PG&E, we are moving forward with a number of structural, management and governance changes to improve operations, remove risk from our system, and ensure long-term accountability for sustained performance. We continue to work together with customers, regulators and community leaders to address the threat of wildfires and expand our wildfire safety programs. We are also recommitting to California’s clean energy future by implementing and advocating for clean energy policy and investing in electrification.
