Energy Safety Issues PG&E Safety Certification

Electrical Corporation Satisfies Seven Statutory Actions Related to Safety


SACRAMENTO – The Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety (Energy Safety) today issued a safety certification to Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) for satisfying seven statutory actions related to safety.


The safety certification validates that a utility has documented completion of statutory (Pub. Util. Code § 8389(e)[1-7]) actions related to investments in safety. It does not constitute an affirmation by Energy Safety that a utility has taken all possible steps to prevent its equipment from causing wildfires. Nor does it shield a utility from liability or litigation.


On Dec. 7, Energy Safety issued safety certifications to Southern California Edison (SCE), San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), and Bear Valley Electric Service (BVES) for satisfying the seven statutory actions related to safety.


Safety certifications remain in effect for 12 months.
