PG&E Corporation is incorporated in California on January 1, 1997. The Company is a holding company that conducts its business through Pacific Gas and Electric Company ('Utility'), a public utility operating in northern and central California. The Company provides electricity and natural gas to its customers. In July 2013, the Company completed its search and review of records relating to pipeline pressure validation for all approximately 6,750 miles of its natural gas transmission system. The Company has substantially completed the installation of advanced electric and gas meters throughout its service territory and continued taking steps to lay the foundation for the development of a 'smart grid' to enable customers to have a control over their energy usage and costs, to integrate new sources of energy, and to enable the continued safe and reliable operation of the grid. In 2013, the Utility received regulatory approval to pilot and test new 'smart grid' technologies that have the potential to support the provision of safe, reliable and affordable electric service. The Company's business is subject to a complex set of energy, environmental and other laws, regulations, and regulatory proceedings at the federal, state, and local levels.
