On January 29, 2019, PG&E Corporation ("PG&E Corp.") and its primary operating subsidiary, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (the "Utility"; together with PG&E Corp., "PG&E" or the "Debtors"), filed voluntary Chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.

Throughout the Chapter 11 process, PG&E remains committed to:

  • Delivering safe and reliable electric and natural gas service to customers;
  • Continuing to make critical investments in system safety and maintenance;
  • Supporting the orderly, fair and expeditious resolution of its liabilities resulting from the 2017 and 2018 wildfires;
  • Working with customers, civic leaders, regulators, policymakers and other key stakeholders to consider alternatives to provide for the safe delivery of natural gas and electricity and new safety solutions in an environment challenged by climate change; and
  • Assisting our customers and communities impacted by wildfires in Northern California. PG&E’s restoration and rebuilding efforts will continue.

PG&E’s cases have been assigned to Judge Dennis Montali and are jointly administered under Case No. 19-30088. The Docket can be accessed by clicking on "Docket" above or through the website maintained by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.
