With Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) facing billions of dollars in potential wildfire liabilities, the investor-owned utility has filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. PG&E has stated that there will be no interruption in power service for customers, and San José Clean Energy (SJCE) will launch electricity generation service to San José homes and businesses this February as planned.

Starting in February, SJCE will be San José’s new electricity generation provider, while PG&E will continue to transmit and distribute the electricity, maintain the powerlines, respond to power outages, and provide billing services.

SJCE and other Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) in California are closely monitoring the situation and evaluating potential impacts on CCA customers and operations.

You can contact PG&E with any questions you may have and you can find more details on their website at www.pge.com/reorganization.
