PG&E gas employees wined and dined just before mass power outages

October 11, 2019

PG&E confirmed that 10 to 12 employees on the gas side of the business were mingling with 50 to 60 of their top customers at a winery in Sonoma County on Monday and Tuesday. It was in the run-up to PG&E's unprecedented power shut-offs for hundreds of thousands of customers this week. Bill Johnson, CEO of the utility's parent company PG&E Corp., admitted to the event in an exclusive interview with The Chronicle on Thursday. He described it as a colossal mistake in poor taste and promised it would never happen again.
