PG&E Refuses To Give Outage Reimbursements

Pacific Gas & Electric is rejecting the idea of reimbursing customers for their financial losses during the planned power outage two-weeks-ago. Governor Newsom sent letter to the utility company requesting they authorize credits for each residential customer of up to $100 and $250 for small businesses.

PG&E executives say that would complicate the company's current bankruptcy case and be inconsistent with its policies and regulations.

They also said the utility does offer limited reimbursements for losses during major storms, but note that policy doesn't apply to the so-called "public safety outages" which come with advance warnings.
