pg webSAN FRANCISCO, CA: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has announced it will offer no-cost installation and removal of temporary electric service to eligible customers rebuilding after the devastating October wildfires. Adding to PG&E’s existing support for affected customers, this effort aims to assist customers who have lost their homes and businesses.

Through December 31, PG&E will provide no-cost installation and removal of temporary electric service for customers’ rebuilding efforts across Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Solano, Sonoma and Yuba counties. Customers should call PG&E’s Building Renovation Service Center at 1-877-743-7782 as they create their rebuilding plans to confirm eligibility and initiate the process with PG&E.

“We’ve been a part of these impacted communities for decades. We will be here to support our customers and these communities throughout the rebuilding process.

The recorded costs will be addressed in PG&E’s upcoming Catastrophic Events Memorandum Account filing.
