The PG&E Service Center (Corporation Yard) on L Street is not the place to pay your bill. The substation pictured above (across the street from the Corporation Yard) backs up to the L and 2nd Garden on the east and is held by the train tracks to the south.

This is the local office for Pacific Gas & Electric, the fine people who bring you your energy through pipes and wires. In April 2005, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to begin the annexation process to have SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) provide electricity to Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento and unincorporated areas of the county instead of PG&E. The SMUD board of directors voted May 19, 2005 on whether to annex this area into its electricity service. SMUD rate-payers -but not Yolo County rate-payers- voted down an annexation proposal in 2006 that would have extended SMUD's territory to include Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento and the area between the cities. The local PG&E office was previously at 707 4th Street Suite 200, where the McCormick Building now stands, but the building was pwned by a tree so they moved to the current location.

PG&E declared bankruptcy on April 6, 2001 due to their flawed business practices. Governor Gray Davis arranged a multi-billion dollar bailout of PG&E. The multi-billion dollar bailout is one of many factors that led to Governor Gray Davis' eventual recall. Today, PG&E customers still bear the burden of this bailout in the form of above average electricity rates. This has continued for years and will most likely continue for some time.

4.8 million PG&E customers will pay between $7 billion and $8 billion of PG&E's bankruptcy-related costs. That is an average of $1,458 to $1,667 per customer over nine years. This payment appears as a non-bypassable surcharge on monthly electric bills averaging $162 to $185/year ($14 to $15/month). This has led to higher monthly electric bills for millions of people.

Many people still feel animosity towards PG&E's corrupt management that is responsible for its terrible business decisions and multi-billion dollar debt. Customers will still be paying PG&E's debts far into the future.

Baseline PG&E rates in September, 2009: Natural gas (methane): $0.96476/therm ($.032927/kWh or 109.333MJ/$) Electricity: $0.11531/kWh ($31.220MJ/$)

  • This is the reason to heat with gas instead of electricity; electricity costs 3.5 times as much as gas.

Gas meters measure volume and are calibrated in 100's of cubic feet (Ccf), but PG&E bills you in energy, measured in therms. Convert volume to energy by multiplying by the conversion factor (1.028123 therm/Ccf PG&E natural gas).

Volume: 100 cubic feet = 1 Ccf = 2.8316846592 cu. meters of natural gas contains approximately 1.028123 therm = 102812.3 BTU = 108.472719MJ = 30.1313108 kWh of energy and costs $.991892. Energy: 1 therm = 100,000 BTU = 105.4804MJ ≈ 29.300111kWh which costs $.96476 is contained in approximately 97.2646269 cubic feet (Ccf) = 2.75422752 cu. meters of natural gas.

  • In essence, your gas meter reads dollars.

Rough energy calculations: It'll cost you approx. 1 cent to burn up a cubic foot of gas, but you get 1 megajoule of energy when you do so. 1 MJ (megajoule) is 1 million watts for one second. This is a good deal, considering it'll cost you 3.5 cents to get that same megajoule in electricity. PG&E uses the US therm (different than the European Union's value, of course) for gas energy, it's equal to 105.4804 megajoules (approx. 29.3kWh). For reference, a gallon of gasoline yields 135 MJ; at $3.00/gallon that's 45 MJ/$.

You used to be able to pay your PG&E bill at Ace Hardware (the southern "housewares" building) until 6 pm daily. As of 2006, this is no longer the case. Kim's Asian Food is no longer listed as a payment center as of 2011.

2008-03-13 14:44:42   I would like to know if anyone else is getting suspicious charges on their PG&E bills—our gas usage bill mysteriously more than quadrupled even though we didn't change our usage at all. I know gas prices increase this year and baseline gas prices increase during the winter, but it probably shouldn't jump up $80 when usage (without running the heater, btw) remained the same...

Please start a dialog if you've had the same problem...there could be something fishy here, since it wouldn't be the first time PG&E hasn't been completely honest... —Julianna

After the gas shut off in South Davis they forget to actually turn my back on. Today I call and they tell me sure they will come "Sometime" today. I leave work at 12:30 per PG&E's advice and now at 7:39 I finally get a call saying they will be here to turn the gas on after they shut if off. I have more to tell but its impossible to condense into a short story, but basically when SMUD comes back on the ballot I encourage all to vote for the opportunity to have competition in our electric and gas provider as PG&E has F%$#(ked me so bad over the years. Waste hours of my day because they can't narrow down an appointment only for them to show up 20 minutes to 8pm. They can't narrow down appointments to better than an 8 hour window??? give me a break.. Who else could stay in business with this type of service model??? —loneshark

  • California Civil Code 1722 requires them to give you a four hour window, and provides for damages (not to exceed $600) if they fail to show in that window. That only governs new contracts.

For the month of October, my bill was $275 when it should have been around $50(I live in a small apartment with no washer/dryer)and had barely used any appliances that month. l called PG and E and the girl on the phone asked me if I had "had any parties or guests", as if that would account for the $275 bill. After an hour and a half of not getting anywhere with her, I decided to go in and talk to an actual person who might be able to help me. The man at the PG and E office I dealt with was pleasant enough, but the woman who also "helped" me was not. She again tried to make it seem like my bill was normal, but told me they'd look into it. I later received a bill for $90. I paid that (even though it was still too high) only to find that my next bill was for close to $400!! I went in again, and as I explained that my bill could in no way shape or form be correct, she actually rolled her eyes at me. I am still dealing with this mess. Something's going on here for sure. —dgirl

2011-04-01 06:54:16   Alright.. I suppose I will play devil's advocate on this one. I have had pretty decent experiences with PGE over the past couple of years. I received several bills that did seem a bit high and, after investigation, found there to be a leak in the gas main leading to my apartment. They fixed the leak, reduced the bills and I also had them shut off the gas to my apartment altogether since A) I am almost always in my room when in my apartment and B) when the heater is on it does not heat the bedrooms unless you leave the doors open, which I never do... So, I never use the heater anyway.

Last year, I was laid off from work and discussed the issue with PGE. PGE helped me set up a plan to maintain my utilities, making delayed payments with no overcharges or extra fees and treated me with respect even though I felt like a "less than" for months after being laid off.

Every time I have to speak to anyone at PGE I have always been greeted with friendly and professional attitudes and intelligent responses. Perhaps things have changed over the past year or two, I don't know. What I do know is that it seems my experience with them is rare if the above comments are to be taken at face value. —Wes-P

Utility customers will pay $10.5 billion for California wildfire costs under bill sent to Newsom

Reporting from Sacramento — 

Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to sign legislation Friday to overhaul how the state pays for utility wildfire damage — a complex bill the governor championed and moved swiftly through the California Legislature this week at Wall Street’s urging.

The bill’s passage was a political victory for the governor, but some questioned whether California leaders were just making a down payment for wildfire costs that will skyrocket if more isn’t done to prevent ever-larger blazes.

The administration says the bill will provide investor-owned utilities with at least $21 billion to pay for damage from blazes linked to their equipment beginning this summer. Utility customers will be required to pay $10.5 billion to the so-called wildfire fund through a 15-year extension of an existing charge on monthly bills, one that was originally expected to expire by 2021.

The Assembly sent AB 1054 to the governor’s desk Thursday with a 63-8 vote, three days after the Senate approved the proposal. Newsom commended lawmakers for moving the bill forward.

“I want to thank the Legislature for taking thoughtful and decisive action to move our state toward a safer, affordable and reliable energy future; provide certainty for wildfire victims; and continue California’s progress toward meeting our clean energy goals,” Newsom said.

The governor propelled the bill through the Legislature in response to threats from credit rating agencies to downgrade the state’s power companies if lawmakers failed to act by the end of this week. Newsom and his legislative allies have argued that his bill will ultimately cost customers less than inaction would.

Weaker credit ratings often lead to higher borrowing costs for utilities, and state regulators have allowed power companies to pass off those capital expenditures to ratepayers through higher monthly bills.

State leaders also feared a worst-case scenario in which Southern California Edison might follow Pacific Gas & Electric Co. into bankruptcy if the liability law remained unchanged, the power company was downgraded and a major wildfire broke out in its territory this year.

The Newsom administration has argued that the law protects ratepayers from potential price spikes by ensuring Edison doesn’t go belly up. As a condition of participation in the fund, the bill requires PG&E to exit its bankruptcy case by next year without raising rates on customers. PG&E would also have to pay off its claims from 2017 and 2018 wildfires to join the fund, a measure wildfire survivor groups praised during legislative hearings this week.

“AB 1054 will pave the way for very important changes in how we address wildfires in California,” said Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-Pasadena). “The package provides certainty for customers whose contributions are fixed by the bill. It provides certainty for the markets to protect the utilities and provides certainty to fire victims.”

An analysis shows that PG&E residential customers could expect their bills to double within eight years if recent wildfire trends continue and state laws go unchanged, said Steven Weissman, a lecturer at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Weissman said that similar increases could fall on Edison customers and that San Diego Gas & Electric Co., if faced with similar liability, could see rates rise even faster.

Weissman’s analysis did not provide a cost comparison to the effects on rates under Newsom’s proposal. He said shuffling money around can only go so far.

“Dollars have to come from somewhere,” Weissman said. “It’s either ratepayers, taxpayers, shareholders or victims. As these wildfires might pile up, you’re going to reach a point of saturation very quickly, where either ratepayers can’t pay their bills, shareholders won’t buy the stock and on down the line. There’s no substitute for doing what we can to prevent wildfires. What a bill like this does is buys a little time.”

Some lawmakers similarly asked their colleagues and the governor to focus more on wildfire prevention as the ultimate solution to the problem.

Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) said lawmakers were going too far to help utilities including PG&E, which has admitted that its equipment probably caused the Camp fire that killed 85 people in Butte County last year. Levine cited a Wall Street Journal investigation published this week that said PG&E knew the line that probably sparked the Camp fire could cause a wildfire and failed to perform upgrades on dangerous equipment.

“It is hard to see this bill as something other than a reward for monstrous behavior,” said Levine, who voted against the bill. “Our efforts should make public safety paramount.”

The ultimate effect of the proposal hinges on how Wall Street perceives the new law, whether the utilities decide to match the ratepayer monies and how state regulators enforce utility safety.

Newsom’s bill offers two different models of wildfire funds to help utilities pay for claims.

One option offers the utilities the $10.5 billion from ratepayers as a line of credit to pay for costs that exceed insurance coverage for wildfire damage. A utility that borrowed from the fund would later be required to repay the loan if regulators decide the company failed to properly manage its system to prevent the fire.

The second model gives utilities the option of contributing $10.5 billion to match the ratepayer money. That would create a fund of at least $21 billion in exchange for a cap on their wildfire liability. Under this plan, SDG&E, Edison and PG&E would have 15 days from the time the law is enacted to signal whether they intend to contribute.

Ana Matosantos, Newsom’s Cabinet secretary, told lawmakers this week that she expects the utilities to choose to participate in the larger wildfire fund.

In order to access the fund, utilities would have to earn a first-of-its-kind annual safety certification before the onset of wildfire season. To receive the certification, companies would be required to tie executive compensation to safety performance, create safety committees on their boards of directors and be implementing their wildfire mitigation plans.

A power company that obtained safety certification before wildfire season would be allowed to dip into the wildfire fund, which would act as a second insurance policy for the utilities. The companies would only have to pay it back, up to a cap, if they behaved unreasonably to cause a fire.

The safety certification would also shift the burden of proof away from a utility, requiring outside groups to intervene in regulatory proceedings and raise serious doubt that the electrical corporation operated its system reasonably before a wildfire.

Under the model, PG&E would be responsible for paying more than 60% of the total $10.5 billion from the utilities. Edison would pay nearly one-third, and SDG&E would cover about 4%.

An initial contribution of $7.5 billion is due from the utilities in the first year. SDG&E and Edison would have to provide their share of the money within 60 days of opting into the plan.

PG&E in particular won’t be required to pay an initial contribution until the San Francisco company emerges from bankruptcy no later than June 30, 2020, according to the governor’s office. Given the current bankruptcy proceedings, PG&E would be able to recover only 40% of its costs that exceed insurance coverage from the fund for wildfires that occur in the next year.

After the the first year, the utilities would be required to pay $300 million in aggregate annually.

The state would deposit an initial contribution of $2 billion after the utilities pay their portion, and an administrator of the fund would later determine when to add the additional money, the governor’s office said.

Several lawmakers expressed concern over the last week about efforts to move such complex legislation so quickly. Legislators who worked closely with Newsom to push the bill forward promised to continue to work on wildfire prevention when lawmakers return from summer break next month.

“We still have other work to do,” said Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Marina del Rey). “This is not the end of the conversation, but this is a pivotal part in the conversation and this was something that cannot be pushed aside anymore because we have seen the cost of inaction and the devastation.”

Billing error pays off for PG&E customer

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- An East Bay man was pretty happy when PG&E told him that he had been paying too much for his electricity and was getting money back, but when he didn't get back all he thought he was owed, he decided to call 7 On Your Side.

David Nelson's Oakland condo has all-electric appliances -- the stove, oven, even the heaters. So he expected a sizable electric bill, but nothing as high as what he received.

"We just assumed something was wrong but they could never tell us what it was," Nelson said.

He was paying well over $100 a month. He says he kept calling PG&E. The utility kept saying the charges were correct. This went on for years, until one day Nelson got a big surprise.

"There was no payment due and there was a credit of $1,199," Nelson said.

After all those charges, PG&E was giving him nearly &1,200 back. When he asked why, PG&E said, indeed, it had been overcharging him all those years.

"Their audit department discovered that the charge was wrong so that generated a credit for three years," Nelson said.

But PG&E only reimbursed him for three years. Nelson had been overcharged for seven years. He figured PG&E owed him around $1,600 more.

The utility said under state guidelines, it does not have to correct bills that are more than three years old.

"That's when I said, 'Well I will have to get 7 On Your Side involved,'" Nelson said.

7 On Your Side contacted PG&E and at first the utility agreed to give Nelson just $500 extra. However it turns out the case is much bigger than Nelson alone.

"There was a billing error that impacted Mr. Nelson and the entire complex," PG&E spokesperson Tamar Sarkissian said.

Sarkissian says everybody in Nelson's condo complex had been overcharged all these years -- not just Nelson. Residents in all 85 units will be getting money back too.

"We always want our customers to have a good experience and in this case we fell short and we do apologize," Sarkissian said.

All units here have permanent electric heating. That means they get to use more electricity before their rates jump to a higher tier. But somehow everyone had been listed as gas users, and was bumped to the higher rate.

"It's something we're investigating; we don't see these kinds of billing errors often," Sarkissian said.

And after our inquiries PG&E decided to waive the three-year limit for correcting bills -- everyone will get reimbursed for all years they lived there.

Nelson's expecting another $1,300 credit.

"Thanks to you guys because I don't think I would have got it without you guys," Nelson said.

If you have a permanent electric heating system you, too, are entitled to more electricity at the lower rate than are gas users. Check your bill. Look for the segment that tells your heating type. Make sure it's correct.

MARTINEZ, CA — PG&E customers in Martinez and beyond who have past-due balances will be auto-enrolled in new extended payment arrangements by the end of September, the utility company announced.

The new program coincides with the ending of the service-disconnection moratorium which was part of the COVID-19 emergency customer protections in place since March 2020.

Residential and small business customers with a PG&E bill at least 60 days past due will automatically be enrolled over the next few weeks starting with their September bill, company officials said in a Sept. 2 news release.

Find out what's happening in Martinez with free, real-time updates from Patch.

"We are here to help customers during these times of increasing financial hardships," said Marlene Santos, PG&E executive vice president and chief customer officer. "We want as many customers who are eligible to take advantage of these programs. Even as COVID-19 customer protections come to an end, our support won't. The new payment plans were created to assist customers pay down their past-due balance over time and protect them from disconnection of service due to non-payment."

The monthly payment plan amount for residential customers will be their outstanding balance equally divided over 24 months. For example, if a residential customer owes $1,200, the payment arrangement would be $50 a month. Payment installations for small business customers will be calculated based on no more than 10 percent of their average bill — 5 percent for customers in certain disadvantaged communities — over the past 24 months.

Find out what's happening in Martinez with free, real-time updates from Patch.

To view the amount of their payment plan installations, customers can sign into their PG&E account online. It will also be on their monthly energy statement under the Account Summary section.

According to the news release, residential customers who miss more than two payments, and small business customers who miss one payment within a 12-month period, will be removed from the payment plan.

"As a last resort, gas and/or electric service may be disrupted approximately 45 days later unless payment is received," company officials said. "Disconnection of service is an action that PG&E does not take lightly. Customers having a hard time paying their bills should contact PG&E immediately at (800) 743-5000."

The company said automatic enrollment in the new payment plan program will not change enrollment in the following financial assistance programs:

2006-07-23 19:43:56   Is there a way to find out information about power outages in Davis? (besides having the unfortunate experience of having a power outage) —DannyYeung


2008-03-13 14:44:42   I would like to know if anyone else is getting suspicious charges on their PG&E bills—our gas usage bill mysteriously more than quadrupled even though we didn't change our usage at all. I know gas prices increase this year and baseline gas prices increase during the winter, but it probably shouldn't jump up $80 when usage (without running the heater, btw) remained the same.

Please start a dialog if you've had the same problem.there could be something fishy here, since it wouldn't be the first time PG&E hasn't been completely honest. —Julianna

  • It could just be that the meter reader read something incorrectly. It is pretty common and usually fixed with a quick phone call. What did they say when you contacted them? —JabberWokky

2008-11-05 19:41:32   The perfect example of why a monopoly is horrible for customers. Horrible F*$(#$#king customer service, terrible accounting practices. Strongarm tactics to force customers to settle or face shutoff. Impossible to reach real people at times who can actually answer anything. After the gas shut off in South Davis they forget to actually turn my back on. Today I call and they tell me sure they will come "Sometime" today. I leave work at 12:30 per PG&E's advice and now at 7:39 I finally get a call saying they will be here to turn the gas on after they shut if off. I have more to tell but its impossible to condense into a short story, but basically when SMUD comes back on the ballot I encourage all to vote for the opportunity to have competition in our electric and gas provider as PG&E has F%$#(ked me so bad over the years. Waste hours of my day because they can't narrow down an appointment only for them to show up 20 minutes to 8pm. They can't narrow down appointments to better than an 8 hour window??? give me a break. Who else could stay in business with this type of service model??? —loneshark

  • California Civil Code 1722 requires them to give you a four hour window, and provides for damages (not to exceed $600) if they fail to show in that window. That only governs new contracts. Service restorations have different rules, but they should still honor a four hour appointment. Here is PG&E's service guarantee. —DavidGrundler

2009-01-08 21:30:19   Re:Julianna, I too had a HUGE bill last month and another this month. For the month of October, my bill was $275 when it should have been around $50(I live in a small apartment with no washer/dryer)and had barely used any appliances that month. l called PG and E and the girl on the phone asked me if I had "had any parties or guests", as if call pge to pay bill would account for the $275 bill. After an hour and a half of not getting anywhere with her, I decided to go in and talk to an actual person who might be able to help me. The man at the PG and E office I dealt with was pleasant enough, but the woman who also "helped" me was not. She again tried to make it seem like my bill was normal, but told me they'd look into it. I later received a bill for $90. Call pge to pay bill paid that (even though it was still too high) only to find that my next bill was for close to $400!! I went in again, and as I explained that my bill could in no way shape or form be correct, she actually rolled her eyes at me. I am still dealing with this mess. Something's going on here for sure. —dgirl


2009-08-12 16:20:08   PG&E has horrible business practices, they overcharge, and they will lie to their customers in order to get a little bit of money. If SMUD comes back on the ballot, I am voting for them. There needs to be some competition in Davis, same goes for Comcast. —IdealParadigm

  • If it ever makes it back to the ballot it wouldn't introduce competition, it would switch from a for profit utility to a publicly owned utility. So it wouldn't introduce competition, but it would take the profit motive out of the mix. —JasonAller

2011-01-05 15:40:18   Peak usage hours would be useful to have on this page, if someone knows them. —RobertM525


2011-04-01 06:54:16   Alright. I suppose I will play devil's advocate on this one. I have had pretty decent experiences with PGE over the past couple of years. I received several bills that did seem a bit high and, after investigation, found there to be a leak in the gas main leading to my apartment. They fixed the leak, reduced the bills and I also had them shut off the gas to my apartment altogether since A) I am almost always in my room when in my apartment and B) when the heater is on it does not heat the bedrooms unless you leave the doors open, which I never do. So, I never use the heater anyway.

Last year, I was laid off from work and discussed the issue with PGE. PGE helped me set up a plan to maintain my utilities, making delayed payments with no overcharges or extra fees and treated me with respect even though I felt like a "less than" for months after being laid off.

Every time I have to speak to anyone at PGE I have always been greeted with friendly and professional attitudes and intelligent responses. Perhaps things have changed over the past year or two, I don't know. What I do know is that it seems my experience with them is rare if the above comments are to be taken at face value. —Wes-P

Telephone Scam Alert – PGE bills
We want to alert you about an ongoing telephone scam. Thieves posing as PGE employees ask customers to purchase a pre-paid credit card to collect a past-due bill – in many cases targeting customers who aren’t past due. This fraud is being reported at PGE and at utilities nationwide, and we’re working with local authorities to investigate. You may have received notice from us about this fraud earlier in the year – because it has continued, we are reaching out again.

Please help us spread the alert
This scam has especially targeted small-business owners for whom English is a second language. We ask for your help in spreading the word to those businesses, as well as to your colleagues, customers and business groups.

How the scam works
The caller states the customer’s electric bill is past due, and the customer must pay immediately or power will be disconnected.

The scammer then directs customers to purchase a pre-paid “Green Dot” credit card and to call back with the card number. In some cases, the caller arranges to call back to get the credit card number. In either case, this is not our practice for collecting past-due accounts.

It is important to know that PGE employees will never ask customers to buy a pre-paid credit call pge to pay bill to pay a bill. Live PGE employees do not accept payment over the phone. PGE only accepts telephone payments using our automated telephone payment system.

If you are targeted by this scam or suspicious about a caller, hang up call pge to pay bill call PGE Customer Service at 800-542-8818 and then report it to local police.

Thank you for your help sharing this important information.

PG&E to end suspension of disconnections for unpaid bills June 30

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- PG&E announced Wednesday its moratorium on disconnecting services for those who cannot pay their bills during the pandemic would end on June 30.

The moratorium was first issued in March 2020 and applied to both residential and commercial customers.

The utility company is now urging customers who have outstanding balances to work with the company to find assistance options before the customer protection program ends.

PG&E officials say they have offered payment plans to more than 1.6 million people and plan to continue to do so after the deadline.

The company said it wouldn't be immediately disconnecting electricity and gas right after June 30. Instead, it plans to offer a grace period for customers who are still unable to pay their bills.

Those who need to recertify for PG&E's assistance programs such as CARE, FERA or Medical Baseline Program will have throughout the year to re-enroll.

For more information, call 1-800-743-5000 or go to PG&E's website.

Utility customers will pay $10.5 billion for California wildfire costs under bill sent to Newsom

Reporting from Uscis profile account number. Gavin Newsom is expected to sign legislation Friday to overhaul how the state pays for utility wildfire damage — a complex bill the governor championed and call pge to pay bill swiftly through the California Legislature this week at Wall Street’s urging.

The bill’s passage was a political victory for the governor, but some questioned whether California leaders were just making a down payment for wildfire costs that will skyrocket if more isn’t done to prevent ever-larger blazes.

The administration says the bill will provide investor-owned utilities with at least $21 billion to pay for damage from blazes linked to their equipment beginning this summer. Utility capital one 360 checking account foreign transaction fee will be required to pay $10.5 billion to the so-called wildfire fund through a 15-year extension of an existing charge on monthly bills, one that was originally expected to expire by 2021.

The Assembly sent AB 1054 to the governor’s desk Thursday with a 63-8 vote, three days after the Senate approved the proposal. Newsom commended lawmakers for moving the bill forward.

“I want money network bank of america register thank the Legislature for taking thoughtful and decisive action to move our state toward a safer, affordable and reliable energy future; provide certainty for wildfire victims; and continue California’s progress toward meeting our clean energy goals,” Newsom said.

The governor propelled the bill through the Legislature in response to threats from credit rating agencies to downgrade the state’s power companies if lawmakers failed to act by the end of this week. Newsom and his legislative allies have argued that his bill will ultimately cost customers less than inaction would.

Weaker credit ratings often lead to higher borrowing costs for utilities, and state regulators woodforest bank routing number texas allowed power companies to pass off those capital expenditures to ratepayers through higher monthly bills.

State leaders also feared a worst-case scenario in which Southern California Edison might follow Pacific Gas & Electric Co. into bankruptcy if the liability law remained unchanged, the power company was downgraded and a major wildfire broke out in its territory this year.

The Newsom administration has argued that the law protects ratepayers from potential price spikes by ensuring Edison doesn’t go belly student checking account promotions. As a condition of participation in the fund, the bill requires PG&E to exit its bankruptcy case by next year without raising rates on customers. PG&E would also have to pay off its claims from 2017 and 2018 wildfires to join the fund, a measure wildfire survivor groups praised during legislative hearings this week.

“AB 1054 will pave the way for very important changes in how we address wildfires in California,” said Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-Pasadena). “The package provides certainty for customers whose contributions are fixed by the bill. It provides certainty for the markets to protect the utilities and provides certainty to fire victims.”

An analysis shows that PG&E residential customers could what do i need to open checking account at chase their bills to double within eight years if recent wildfire trends continue and state laws go unchanged, said Steven Weissman, a lecturer at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Weissman said that similar increases could fall on Edison customers and that San Diego Gas & Electric Co., if faced with similar liability, could see rates rise even faster.

Weissman’s analysis did not provide a cost comparison to the effects on rates under Newsom’s proposal. He said shuffling money around can only go so far.

“Dollars have to come from somewhere,” Weissman said. “It’s either ratepayers, taxpayers, shareholders or victims. As these wildfires might pile up, you’re going to reach a point of saturation very quickly, where either ratepayers can’t pay their bills, shareholders won’t buy the stock and on down the line. There’s no substitute for doing what we can to prevent wildfires. What a bill like this does is buys a little time.”

Some lawmakers similarly asked their colleagues and the governor to focus more on wildfire prevention as the ultimate solution to the problem.

Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) said lawmakers were going too far to help utilities including PG&E, which has admitted that its equipment probably caused the Camp fire that killed 85 people in Butte County last year. Levine cited a Wall Street Journal investigation published this week that said PG&E knew the line that probably sparked the Camp fire could cause a wildfire and failed to perform upgrades on dangerous equipment.

“It is hard to see this bill as something other than a reward for monstrous behavior,” said Levine, who voted against the bill. “Our efforts should make public safety paramount.”

The ultimate effect of the proposal hinges on how Wall Street perceives the new law, whether the utilities decide to match the ratepayer monies and pearl avenue library san jose state regulators enforce utility safety.

Newsom’s bill offers two different models of wildfire funds to help utilities pay for claims.

One option offers the utilities the $10.5 billion from ratepayers as a line of credit to pay for costs that exceed insurance coverage for wildfire damage. A utility that borrowed from the fund would later be required to repay the loan if regulators decide the company failed to properly manage its system to prevent the fire.

The second model gives utilities the option of contributing $10.5 billion to match the ratepayer money. That would create a fund of at least $21 billion in exchange for a cap on their wildfire liability. Under this plan, SDG&E, Edison and PG&E would have 15 days from the time the law is enacted to signal whether they intend to contribute.

Ana Matosantos, Newsom’s Call pge to pay bill secretary, told lawmakers this week that she expects the utilities to choose to participate in the larger wildfire fund.

In order to access the fund, utilities would have to earn a first-of-its-kind annual safety certification before the onset of wildfire season. To receive the certification, companies would be required to tie executive compensation to safety performance, create safety committees on their boards of directors and be implementing their wildfire mitigation plans.

A power company that obtained safety certification before wildfire season would be allowed to dip into the wildfire fund, which would act as a second insurance policy for the utilities. The companies would only have to pay it back, up to a cap, if they behaved unreasonably to cause a fire.

The safety certification would also shift the burden of proof away from a utility, requiring outside groups to intervene in regulatory proceedings and raise serious doubt that the electrical corporation operated its system reasonably before a wildfire.

Under the model, PG&E would be responsible for paying more than 60% of the total $10.5 billion from the utilities. Edison would pay nearly one-third, and SDG&E would cover about 4%.

An initial contribution of $7.5 billion is due from the utilities in the first year. SDG&E and Edison would have to provide their share of the money within 60 days of opting into the plan.

PG&E in particular won’t be required to pay an initial contribution until the San Francisco company emerges from bankruptcy no later than June 30, 2020, according to the governor’s office. Given the current bankruptcy proceedings, PG&E would be able to recover only 40% of its costs that exceed insurance coverage from the fund for wildfires that occur in the next year.

After the the first year, the utilities would be required to pay $300 million in aggregate annually.

The state would deposit an initial contribution of $2 billion after the utilities pay their portion, and an administrator of the fund would later determine when to add the additional money, the governor’s office said.

Several lawmakers expressed concern over the last week about efforts to move such complex legislation so quickly. Legislators who worked closely with Newsom to push the bill forward promised to continue to work on wildfire prevention when lawmakers return from summer break next month.

“We still have other work to do,” said Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Marina del Rey). “This is not the end of the conversation, but this is a pivotal part in the conversation and this was something that cannot be pushed aside anymore because we have seen the cost of inaction and the devastation.”
