CPUC Places PG&E into Enhanced Oversight Process

The California Public Utilities Commission yesterday placed PG&E into the first step of an enhanced oversight and enforcement process based on the company’s failure to sufficiently prioritize clearing vegetation on its highest-risk power lines as part of its wildfire mitigation work in 2020. PG&E is ordered to make corrective actions to ensure it improves its safety performance. PG&E must file a detailed corrective action plan by May 5, with follow-up reports required every 90 days thereafter.
