Customer-Owned PG&E

Customer-Owned PG&E 

Enough is enough: It’s time to build a PG&E focused on serving Californians—NOT its investors. 

That’s why in November 2019, Mayor Liccardo proposed a better way: transforming the investor-owned utility into one owned by its customers. By reforming the company in this way, we can align its financial interests with the public interest, and restore reliable, safe utility service for our residents and businesses.

Mayor Liccardo’s plan is gaining traction. To support his plan, the Mayor has formed a growing coalition of 195 mayors, county supervisors, councilmembers, and local officials—who represent the majority of Californians served by PG&E—to urge the company’s transformation. 

Together, the officials sent the State’s utility-regulating agency a letter decrying the company’s decades of mismanagement and underinvestment that has led to significant public safety issues—including ongoing power outages and devastating fires—and asked them to explore the new proposed model. The leaders endorsed Mayor Liccardo’s proposal ahead of the CPUC’s review of potential reorganization plans for PG&E—which the regulatory body must approve before PG&E heads to bankruptcy court.

Join the coalition

We can’t build a better PG&E alone. Please sign up for important updates on a customer-owned PG&E and email us at Mackenzie.Mossing@sanjoseca.gov to set up a phone call with Mayor Liccardo and his team to learn how you can join the growing movement.
