Service for almost all PG&E Corp. customers in wildfire-ravaged Paradise, Calif., has been restored or can be restored, the company said, now that crews have completed repairing, testing and restoring gas mains in the area where it provides service.
The company began restoring gas services to its customers there in mid-December 2018.
"As [PG&E Corp.] moves forward with its long-term rebuilding plans, we are also working closely with the town of Paradise and Butte County to ensure that the infrastructure reconstruction effort fully aligns with their strategy for rebuilding these communities," said PG&E Corp.'s new vice president for electric operations, Aaron Johnson.
PG&E Corp.'s credit rating was recently bumped down several notches by S&P Global Ratings to junk status amid reports of a possible bankruptcy filing upcoming as it faces the potential of billions of dollars in liabilities for 2017 and 2018 wildfires. The holding company of Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is also considering a sale of its gas utility business.
