California utility Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. is asking state regulators for another increase in rates and profits, saying it's needed for wildfire safety and to attract investment as the utility goes through bankruptcy. The Sacramento Bee reports Monday that the request and a previous one could result in average PG&E customer bills rising more than $22 a month for electricity and natural gas. Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric, the state's other major utilities, also asked the Public Utilities Commission for greater profit margins, saying they need to offer investors a higher return for taking on financial insecurity related to wildfires.
California utility owner PG&E Corp said on Monday it agreed to a deal with BlueMountain Capital Management LLC to appoint a new independent director and a safety adviser, resolving a months-long battle with the activist shareholder. BlueMountain, a New York-based hedge fund, in March selected 13 candidates it hoped to install as directors at PG&E's board after slamming the embattled power utility for seeking bankruptcy protection. As part of the agreement, BlueMountain will withdraw its nominee slate of 13 candidates and vote in favor of PG&E's board nominees at the meeting, PG&E said in a statement.
Fred Buckman, the former head of the utility Consumers Energy, will join PG&E’s board as part of an agreement with BlueMountain Capital Management, according to a statement Monday. PG&E, which filed for bankruptcy in January, proposed adding an additional spot to its board, expanding it to 15 directors. It also named Chris Hart, the former chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, as a special independent safety adviser who will report directly to new Chief Executive Officer Bill Johnson.
PG&E Corporation (PCG) today announced additional changes to the Boards of Directors (the “PG&E Boards” or the “Boards”) of the Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (together, the “company”) as well as actions aimed at strengthening the company’s safety culture. Fred Buckman, former CEO of Consumers Energy and PacifiCorp, has been appointed to the Boards as a new independent director, effective immediately. Dr. Buckman will replace Richard Kelly, who has resigned as a director of each of the Boards.

Breed said she sees an opportunity to deliver clean power to her residents while keeping rates as low as possible. “I’m pretty excited about it, and I am hopeful that we are able to do it,” Breed said in an interview with Bloomberg News Wednesday at City Hall. Breed’s remarks showed the potential for sweeping change at San Francisco-based PG&E, which filed for bankruptcy in January under the weight of an estimated $30 billion in liabilities from wildfires.
Mayor London Breed said in an interview with Bloomberg News that she’s “pretty excited” at the prospect of the city taking over its local grid from bankrupt utility PG&E Corp. A feasibility study is due later this month — and it’s not the first one, either. San Francisco has been considering taking its grid out of PG&E’s hands, off and on, since at least the 1990s. It is easy to see why San Francisco is tempted.
The Board of Directors of PG&E Corporation (PCG) today announced that the joint 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of the Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company, previously scheduled for May 21, 2019, will be rescheduled in order to allow additional time following the Board’s substantial refreshment announced on April 3, 2019.

Californians like to think they show the rest of the country the way to a clean energy future. Inconveniently, utility power purchase agreements (PPAs), which have been the principal economic model for renewable energy in the state, face legal collapse within two weeks. The PPA crisis is one of the consequences of the bankruptcy of Pacific Gas & Electric, the state’s largest utility.

California regulators expressed skepticism Monday that Pacific Gas & Electric Corp.'s new leaders have enough professional experience to instill the deep corporate culture of safety they say the company has lacked. The utility has been blamed for more than a dozen of California's most destructive wildfires in the past two years. The five-member California Public Utilities Commission questioned veteran PG&E board member Richard Kelly about the safety qualifications of 10 new board members and incoming chief executive Bill Johnson, who starts May 1.

The creation of a fund that would allow utilities to pay for wildfire damage claims sent PG&E Corp shares soaring nearly 12 percent before closing 3.95 percent higher on Friday. "PG&E is a textbook example of what happens when a utility does not invest in safety after numerous deadly reminders to do so over many years," a report released by Newsom said. PG&E said in a statement that it is "embracing the calls for change," and committed to resolving wildfire victims' claims fairly and expeditiously.
The governor issued a report Friday outlining possible solutions for how costs for destructive wildfires will be covered -- including a possible fund that utilities can tap into -- that sent the clearest signal yet that the state will move to keep its power companies solvent. The wide-ranging report gave Wall Street optimism that California will work with utilities to solve an intractable problem: who pays for wildfires as climate change threatens to make them deadlier and more frequent. Now, the task of developing a concrete approach falls to lawmakers, who need to work quickly as another fire season nears.
