Throughout 2013, Currents has shown the progress PG&E has been making in providing safe, reliable and affordable energy for its customers. And, in dozens of video stories, the work that PG&E does to support the communities where its employees work and live comes to life.
These videos have told a wide range of stories — from the arrival of a new energy statement, plus versions in Spanish and Chinese – a first for a U.S. utility — to showing customers how to safely use metallic balloons as part of their celebrations.
Here’s a quick look at some of our highlights from videos created in 2013.
- A massive fire near Yosemite required PG&E crews to work closely with first responders to keep customers and firefighters safe.
- In San Ramon, a new high-tech Gas Control Center is akin to an air-traffic control tower for PG&E’s gas system.
- Measuring snowpack in the winter helps plan for hydro-electric power later in the year, and PG&E hydrographers need to get to the snow anyway they can.
- Supporting education is a hallmark of PG&E’s charitable giving and those who earned full-ride Bright Minds scholarships were grateful for the assistance.
- In remote Humboldt County, PG&E partnered with the Yurok Tribe to provide electricity for the first time.
- And in small towns in Central California, PG&E helped put energy efficiency on the map.
PG&E serves 15 million Californians across 70,000 square miles. As these video stories show, the company provides something essential and something extra.
