We are privileged to serve 16 million Californians across a diverse array of cities, towns and neighborhoods. Our commitment begins with our responsibility to deliver gas and electricity that is safe, reliable, affordable and clean. Every day, we are also working to better understand the energy needs of our customers, support cleaner energy options and increase customer choice. Our commitment also includes working locally to support the vitality of the communities where our employees live and work.
