Unfortunately, Californians do not have forever to wait for PG&E to finally get it right. PG&E has broken the public’s trust time and time again. Five of the ten more destructive fires since 2015 have been linked to PG&E’s mismanagement of its electrical system. During this same period the utility lavished shareholders with $4.5 billion in cash dividends. . . money that should have been spent ensuring the safety of their system and preventing wildfires.
Now they want ratepayers to pay for their mismanagement. How much worse does it have to get before legislators hold PG&E accountable?
