A hearty thanks to PG&E for making the Dream Journal and the event possible!
PG&E has an ongoing commitment to being good stewards of the environment and to clean energy – a commitment demonstrated in a range of actions in 2014 , many of which are notewothy.
This past summer at the country’s leading electric utility industry association, Edison Electric Institute, PG&E urged utilities to more than double their current investments in electric utility fleet vehicles – which would create economic and environmental benefits for utilities and customers. PG&E currently has the largest fleet of electric vehicles of any utility in the United States.
As part of PG&E’s Avian Protection Plan, the company retrofitted some 28,000 utility poles to make them “bird safe.” PG&E also educates its employees to comply with all state and federal bird protection laws and promotes the need for migratory bird and habitat conservation.
For many years, PG&E has worked closely with resource agencies to help sustain the state and federally threatened spring-run Chinook salmon in Butte Creek, one of only three creeks that support a self-sustaining population.
And this year, PG&E cemented its place as a national leader in renewable energy – the utility is home to more solar rooftop installations than any other place in the country. PG&E has interconnected more than 100,000 solar rooftops, enabling more than 1,000 megawatts of rooftop solar power in its service area.
In October, PG&E donated a 151-acre parcel in Tehama County to the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), marking the company’s second land transfer as part of its Land Conservation Commitment.
