PG&E: Top of California Solar Utility Heap

With its 150,000th solar installation and many more to come, San Francisco-based Pacific Gas & Electric is cleaning up and shaping up to become America’s largest solar utility. It added 45,000 customers last year alone, and connects on average 4,000 new solar systems a month, reportedly more than “any other energy company in the nation,” PG&E’s milestone press release explained.

“Every month, thousands of PG&E customers are choosing to go solar to help them save on their bill and to reduce their carbon footprint,” said PG&E VP Laurie Giammona. “Solar power is critical to California’s clean energy future.”
