PG&E COMMENTS ON SAN FRANCISCO ELECTION RESULTS

SAN FRANCISCO - Pacific Gas and Electric Company issued the following statement, on the preliminary results of the election in San Francisco:

"Pacific Gas and Electric Company is pleased by the overwhelming passage of Measure B, which will promote the development of new, alternative electric generation (wind and solar power), as well as additional energy conservation for San Franciscans. The voters clearly recognized that increased generation and conservation are vital to ensuring adequate, reliable power supplies for local residents and businesses, and this vote represents part of a real solution to the energy crisis.

"Voters saw through the MUD proposal and realized it did not offer a solution to the power generation crisis. The fate of Proposition F remains unclear and we await the final tally.

"In the meantime, the thousands of hard working men and women at Pacific Gas and Electric Company will continue to deliver the same high level of safe, reliable electric service to our valued customers in San Francisco that has been the hallmark of the company for more than 96 years."
