PG&E Fines & Citations
PG&E Issued nearly $9 Million in Fines and Citations for 2017
While no one yet knows what caused the North Bay fires, we believe that it’s significant that both Cal Fire and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) have launched investigations into whether PG&E might have been responsible.
Why is it significant? Because just this year – to say nothing about previous years – the CPUC has issued citations and fines against PG&E that amount to nearly $9 million.
In other words, PG&E is a known troublemaker. And now, we’re paying for it with the loss of our homes, our security, and our livelihoods.
Take a look at this year’s CPUC citations and fines against PG&E, http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/General.aspx?id=1965 and we think you’ll agree with us that it is right and proper for state investigators to focus on PG&E in their search for the cause of the most devastating wildfires in California’s history.

CPUC fines PG&E $8 million for the improper maintenance of the power equipment that malfunctioned and ignited the Butte Fire.
June 6, 2017
CPUC fines PG&E $400,000 for failing to maintain their power equipment in a way that follows state law.
Let us stress again that the CPUC issues fines and citations against PG&E every single year. In the legal world, PG&E is what’s known as a repeat offender.
We believe that if you’ve lost your home to the fires, you may want to seek legal and financial justice.
