Green Energy

According to the Enterprise Record, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) plans to “ramp up safety” regulations and concerns in light of the recent Camp Fire in Butte County, California. While this may seem like too little too late, PG&E definitely needs to do something to address their current safety record. Some of these new safety regulations include things like real-time monitoring of power lines, tree removal, and more.

What is PG&E Planning to do to Address Safety Concerns?

PG&E plans to do several things to help address the growing concerns seated around their current safety policies. Some of the safety regulations and goals mentioned by PG&E during a Butte County Board of Supervisors meeting include:
