PG&E News Release: Serving Up a Full Plate of Gratitude and a Side Dish of Energy Savings for Our Customers This Thanksgiving

San Francisco, CA...As we take time to feast and give thanks, the 25,000 coworkers of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) want to express sincere appreciation for our customers. Our community only works when we support one another. We are honored to be a part of it and privileged to provide energy service to millions across Northern and Central California.

This Thanksgiving, PG&E shares ways to gobble up energy savings to help reduce higher holiday energy bills.

“We feel fortunate to be able to serve the same communities where we live and raise our families. With this in mind, we encourage customers to put safety first at holiday gatherings and look for ways to reduce energy use this season,” said Aaron August, PG&E’s Vice President of Business Development & Customer Engagement.

Here are some simple tips for customers enjoying the holidays:

Start with a Clean Oven and Stovetop to reduce the risk of a grease fire.

Keep the Oven Door Closed when in use. Cut down your oven's energy consumption by using the oven light to check on food instead of opening the door. It will help maintain the correct temperature and minimize the oven having to reheat itself.

Use the Stove Instead of the Oven as range-top cooking uses less energy. Also plan side dishes that can cook simultaneously in the oven to reduce the amount of time it is running. Use the microwave to reheat or cook small portions.

Install a Dimmer Light Switch for dining room light fixture(s). Dimming a bulb’s brightness by 10% can double the bulb’s lifespan. Keep the lights off when not in use.

Use a Dishwasher and scrape plates instead of rinsing with hot water to save energy and money. Wait until there is a full load before starting the dishwasher. And be sure to stop the appliance before the heated dry cycle; open the door and let your dishes air-dry.

Fire safety is critical on Thanksgiving as it is the peak day for home cooking fires especially when frying foods. Turkey fryers can easily tip over spilling hot oil across a large area. Customers should only use turkey fryers outdoors on a sturdy, level surface away from things that can burn.

    Thank you PG&E. I appreciate having lights and running appliances. Keep up all your hard and “honest” work! Don’t mind making payment to a reliable company. Up here on the mountain, amazing how your workers keep us powered up.

Thank you PGE. Your tip about keeping the oven door closed when using the oven was news to me!!!! We will immediately start closing the oven door when cooking with the oven. Hell, if you think about it, It actually makes sense!!

This holiday message, from a company that has caused untold loss of lives and property damage through their continued lack of precautions to prevent million of acres of fire devastation. Not the fault of the "worker bees" . PG&E profits, at the expense of those who have no other choice of power. California at it's best !

    Should be a PSPS event every day!! Lasting all day and night!! Who cares about “hard working” 😂😂😂 middle class Americans! Our awesome amazing superhero in chief does not! So why should I? Turn off the power completely and give every illegal $450,000!! It’s so refreshing having a president who puts illegals first!

      Great bunch of boots on the ground employees. Criminal administration, they should be in jail along with the PUC and governor! Watch ABC Fire Money Power.
