CURRENTS WEEK IN REVIEW: Dec. 28-31, 2015

OUR FAVORITE STORIES FROM 2015: DEMONSTRATING PG&E's COMPASSION, DEDICATION TO PROVIDING SAFE, RELIABLE POWER

Currents staff members have chosen some of their favorites stories from 2015. The selection includes this video about how PG&E employees — at times more than 1,000-strong — helped to safely and quickly restore power to communities affected by fires in September. This story demonstrates the dedication of our employees, who worked long shifts away from their families, as well as their compassion. It also shows how grateful customers were to see PG&E-blue trucks roll into their neighborhoods to help return a sense of normalcy.

Currents covered these stories and more this year.

In Humboldt County, America's 'Last Company Town' Getting PG&E Power

James Green, Currents video producer: It's not every day that PG&E gets to build a new electric system from the ground up in a California community. Witnessing a sea of blue PG&E trucks pour into Scotia — America's last company town — to hoist electric poles and string wires was a site to behold. PG&E helped usher in a new chapter in this town. It's a video story I won't soon forget.

Honoring Margaret Mooney, a PG&E Trailblazer

Tracy Correa Lopez, Currents writer: Margaret Mooney was a woman ahead of her time. She was one the nation's first female meteorologists and the first at a major utility when she joined PG&E in 1966. She served as director of PG&E's all-male meteorology team. It was a special treat to meet the 86-year-old to discuss her career and a PG&E employee award named in her honor.

How a Navy Veteran with No Electrical Experience Became PG&E's First Lineman Hall of Fame Inductee

David Kligman, Currents editor: Jim McKenna was PG&E's first inductee into the International Lineman Hall of Fame. He bought a broken-down car and drove from his hometown in Minnesota to California and found a job with PG&E where he worked until he retired. He reinvented himself and became a pioneer in safe working practices. To me, he represents the American dream.
