PG&E seeks court permission to fund energy efficiency programs

If its motion is approved by the court, Pacific Gas and Electric Company will be able to immediately pay for costs incurred in connection with the Public Purpose Programs prior to April 6, the day it filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The utility owes approximately $37 million to consumers who have requested rebates and to contractors who have performed work in customers’ homes and businesses to make them more energy efficient. A favorable ruling will also ensure that the $260 million now in the energy efficiency accounts will be fully available for payments for these programs.
