  • 1. Reflects 2019 greenhouse gas emissions given that 2020 emissions are currently undergoing third-party verification. 1a , 1b , 1c ,
  • 2. For 2019 emissions reporting, PG&E used the California Energy Commission’s Power Source Disclosure program methodology to calculate the CO2 emission rate associated with the electricity delivered to retail customers. As required by AB 1110, the CEC modified the Power Source Disclosure program methodology in 2020 for the 2019 reporting year. This methodology differed from prior reporting years and results in a significantly lower emissions rate. 2
  • 3. Average rate includes all customers (bundled and departing load) that receive delivery service from PG&E. 3
